Abstract

The aim of the present study is to test the feasibility of a compact/low cost MWIR spectrometer in the detection of adulterants in fuels by means of the differentiation between oils and alcohols, and by the other hand, in identifying different kind of edible oils in order to be used for the quality control of oils inside the Food industry. In this work a set of edible oils together with alcohols were used to assess the ability of a compact and low cost MWIR spectrometer to distinguish between different long-chained alcohols and the fatty acids which compose the vegetable oils. The results obtained confirm that the compact and low cost MWIR device is able to differentiate between oils and alcoholic compounds and also between long and short chain alcohols by means of chemometrical tools such as a Principal Component and MANOVA analysis.
