Sterols from Olive Oil on ZB-5MS

Sample Preparation Details

Part No:8B-S001-JCH
Solid Phase Extraction (SPE) procedure:Note: The solvent volumes shown below are for a 1 g bed mass. The solvent volumes will need to be adjusted for a smaller or larger bed mass.
Load:0.74 g olive oil in 10 ml 0.5 M KOH in ethanol. Shake and Reflux a 77 °C for 20 min. Cool down then add 10 ml 0.22 mg/ml betulin (istd) in chloroform and shake for 5 min. Let it settle and collect liquid phase in a 20 ml screw cap vial. Transfer and filter 3 ml aliquot to a BD 10 ml syringe screw to a Phenex 30 mm 0.45 um teflon filter, collect filtrate in 4 ml screw cap vial. Condition Strata C 18-E SPE (55 um, 70 A) on a manifold plugged to a vacuum pump, onto a 1/125 mm culture tube, with 5 ml methanol and 5 ml chloroform. Replaced tube with conditioning material with a new one and labeled accordingly, then transfer
onto miniscuos chloroform-sorbent 1 ml aliquot and elute sterols with 15 ml 5 % methanol in chloroform. Concentrate collected volume to 1 ml with nitrogen. Transfer 200 ul aliquot to 500 ul insert sample vial and dry completely with nitrogen,
reconstitute with 100 ul pyridine, and deirvatize with 100 ul BSTFA:TMCS; 99:1. Heat up at 70 °C for 20 min and inject.
