MSc research proposal - advice
« on: April 12, 2018, 09:40:06 AM »
I have to propose a topic for my MSc thesis research, and the supervisor told me to find anything about raspberries that can be measured on a GC-FID. Which components of raspberries could be detected and quantified in such way? P.s. unfortunately, we don't have SPME fibers available in our lab...

Thanks in advance.

OK.  How does a GC work, and what does it do?  Working from a definition, you can begin to suggest what might be doable.

At >70 posts over the last 5 years, you should be aware of our Forum Rules{click}.  You already accepted the rules when you signed up for our forum, and you have to follow them, whether you agree with them or not, or even if you're unaware of them.

We don't dump complete answers on this forum, not for a new student, not for a professional in a hurry,  and not for an amateur trying to invent the latest thing.

Consider:  would you use a FID detector to detect the colored pigments in plant material?

Consider:  would you use a GC to analyze soluble ions in plant material?

And I don't know where the lack of SPME fibers was supposed to lead us.
Hey, I'm not judging.  I just like to shoot straight.  I'm a man of science.
