    Food Testing & Agriculture



    The Agilent CP-Wax 57 CB phase provides a unique selectivity for the analysis of impurities in alcoholic beverages. Besides the separation of the two fusel alcohols (peaks 12 and 13), the ethyl acetate is separated from the diethyl acetal and the isobutanol from the iso-amylacetate. The CP-Wax 57 CB has an excellent stability for samples containing high levels of water or water-ethanol mixtures, which makes the phase suitable for the analysis of distilled spirits.
