This test method covers the quantitative determination of total monoglyceride, total diglyceride, total triglyceride, and free and total glycerin in B-100 methyl esters by gas chromatography. The range of quantitation for monoglyceride is 0.009 % to 0.77860 % by mass, for diglyceride is 0.092353 % to 0.54475 % by mass, and for triglyceride is 0.00092857 % to 1.3881 % by mass. The range of quantitation for free glycerin is 0.0005714 % to 0.019533 % by mass and for total glycerin from 0.0090714 % to 0.42767 % by mass. This procedure is not applicable to vegetable oil methyl esters obtained from lauric oils, such as coconut oil and palm kernel oil.
