Paraffin Oil Testing

Paraffin Oil Testing – Common uses of paraffin oil include insect repellent, cleaning product, weed killer and plant growth additive.

Mineral oils are certain fractions from petroleum refining and may be traded under various designations such as paraffinum liquidum, paraffin, cera microcristallina, petrolatum (soft paraffin), mineral oil, paraffin wax, paraffin oil, ozokerite, or white (mineral) oil, depending on type (eg, liquid or solid) or field of application. 

Highly refined mineral oils are practically tasteless and odorless even when warmed. 

The first step of MOSH-MOAH analysis is the necessity to obtain a solution usable for chromatography. In simple cases (e.g., for raw materials or dry food products), an extraction with hexane is sufficient.
