On the other hand, it seems to be very attractive to separate the sterol fraction from the mixture of fatty acid alkali salts, glycerol, excess of alkali, and solvent by using column chromatography separation with principles of solid phase extraction (SPE).
Moreover, at the injection of a sample contaminated with fatty acid alkali salts into a GC instrument the injection liner will be contaminated very quickly and the data of the analysed components will be affected dramatically.
