The European Journal of Lipid Science and Technology is a print and electronic journal publishing articles in the field of lipid science and technology. The journal will consider articles with respect to scientific and geographical integration of the multifaceted European lipid science and technology spectrum. The journal is supported by the DGF - the German Society for Fat Science and will soon be assisted by the European Federation for the Science and Technology of Lipids (EFL). With the growing relevance of renewable resources lipids fats and oils will pay an increasingly important role in many aspects of science and technology. Biotechnology and Genetic Engineering Both have opened a wealth of possibilites for the production of tailormade industrial raw materials. These materials including those made from domestic plants can be produced in a manner protective of both environment and resources. Process Engineering in the Field of Oil Technology In spite of the fact that extracting oil from plants may well be one of mankind's oldest technical processes breakthroughs in process engineering have brought forth major improvements in the last few years. Nutrition and Food In nutritional science and the food branch emphasis is given to levels and composition of fatty acids and minor ingredients in food to optimize health requirements so as to combat vascular disease and obesity. Analytical Chemistry and Instrumentation Modern analytical techniques such as capillary gas chromatography or silver-ion high performance liquid chromatography combined with different detection methods are mandatory for the unequivocal determination of geometrical and positional fatty acids isomeres. Chemistry and Physical Chemistry The range of applications of oils and fats stretches from detergents to plastics to cosmetics and pharmaceutical ingredients. Major progress is made here due to the important developments in chemistry and physical chemistr. Society Affiliation German Society for Fat Science (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Fettwissenschaft e.V.)
