ASTM WK20385

    New Test Method for Determination of Total Glycerin in Biodiesel (B-100) by Liquid Chromatography

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: D02.04.0C | Committee D02 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Scope

    1.1 This method determines the total glycerin in biodiesel fuel (range TBD) by liquid chromatography. 1.2 Mono- di- and triacylglycerols are eluted as single peaks for each compound class and therefore could be reported separately as well as together as total glycerin.

    There is a total glycerin specification for biodiesel. Also, monoglyceride content is of particular interest as a component in biodiesel fuel.


    FAME; fatty acid methyl esters; monoglycerides

    The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
