Quantitative Analysis of Plant Membrane Lipids by a Combined TLC-GLC Procedure

  • W. Eichenberger


In the analysis of membrane acyl lipids two aspects are very often of major interest: The quantitative determination of the particular lipid components and their fatty acid composition. The scope of the experiment is the separation of a lipid mixture by two-dimensional TLC and the subsequent separation and quantitative determination by GLC of the fatty acids. From the total amount of fatty acids, the amount of particular lipid components is calculated.
