Fatty acids play important roles in biological tissues. For example, fatty acids as constituents of lipids in biological membranes influence membrane properties such as fluidity, integrity, permeability, and the activities of membrane-bound enzymes. Fatty acids as components of foods serve as a source of energy for man and animals.
Fatty acids in foods and biological samples are commonly analyzed by chromatography of their fatty acid methyl esters (FAMEs). The structure of fatty esters consists of a fatty acid where the carboxyl group of the fatty acid is linked to a diverse range of substituents via an ester bond. Owing to chromatographic-mass spectrometry providing spectrometric information on separated compounds, it provides a means of analyte selectivity. Thus, detection with mass spectrometry reveals a potentially powerful tool for quantitative analysis of FAMEs, especially in the presence of a convoluted biochemical background.
