Agrotecnio aims to become a reference in Europe addressing all the key elements of the food production chain in an integrated way focusing on target crops and animals of commercial importance, rather than model systems. This later aspect sets our centre apart from other centers which focus on fundamental science and/or model plant and animal systems. As a result we should be able to address fundamental and important questions in the crop/animal of interest and results from our research will be directly and immediately applicable to our target organism.

Iodine values (IVs) of some biodiesel samples were analyzed using both 1H NMR and a standard iodometric method. 1H NMR was carried out with and without 1,4-dioxane as an internal standard (IS). The results obtained using 1H NMR with 1,4-dioxane as an internal standard showed better linear fitting and correlation with the iodometric method than NMR without the IS. The proposed 1H NMR_IS method allows determination of the IV using smaller samples than the iodometric method. Moreover, the determination can be carried out in less than 15 min, dramatically less than the time needed to carry out the iodometric method.
