Lipid oxidation, though researched since the beginning of the 20th century, still gives no complete and satisfactory information on the composition of oxidized lipids. One important factor contributing to these gaps in our knowledge about lipid oxidation relates to the shortages in analytical methodology. Analytical methods suitable for oxidized lipids were often reviewed in the last decade, but mostly from the aspect of determination of individual oxidized lipid classes, such as peroxides, aldehydes, polar lipids, or polymers. In this book, they are treated from the standpoint of types of analytical methods used, including different volumetric methods, UV-visible spectrometric methods, high performance size-exclusion chromatography, nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy, electron spin resonance spectroscopy, and differential scanning calorimetry. Analysis of Lipid Oxidation is essential for further developments in analytical methodology and hyphenated techniques, with which more understanding of the reaction kinetics, mechanism, and implications will take place.
