Abstract

This study reports on the use of high pressure liquid chromatography with evaporative light scattering detection for the analysis of low molecular weight constituents in sterile and fungal treated pinewood. The analytical method used requires minimal sample preparation and enables the quantification of the main apolar constituents without derivatization in one run. The main constituents, i.e., individual free fatty acids, sterols and triglycerides are well separated. Resin acids, with the exception of dehydroabietic acid, are not separated and co-elute.
