Abstract

The deep changes caused by oxidation on virgin olive oil (VOO), which is a high-quality product, not subjected to ameliorative refining, make this phenomenon one of the most studied. Among the techniques used to study oxidation in olive oil, thermal analysis (TA) provides useful information about the thermal behavior of the samples as affected by oxidation. Thermogravimetry (TG), measuring the changes in the sample mass, can monitor the kinetics of oil mass loss in decomposition processes or oxidation and has been found particularly useful, especially when operating simultaneously with Differential Thermal Analysis (DTA) or Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC). The DSC thermal curves of olive oil, both on cooling and heating, has been found to be largely influenced by the oxidative status of the samples and different statistical approaches have been successfully proposed to correlate the thermal parameters with the conventional chemical indicators of oxidation. DSC can be also used to study the kinetics of phase transition phenomena as affected by oxidation. This review provides an exhaustive survey about the application of the thermoanalytical techniques on this topic proposing them as as a fast and green alternative to conventional chemical methods.
