Dear Listmembers,
Thanks to all those who responded to my request about isotopes in alcohols.
The responses are posted below. Thanks

Iain

Hi Iain

We do a lot of work for the Australian Customs Department looking at
adulteration of alcohols using both carbon isotopes and congener profiles.
Most of the work that is done including our own is commercial-in-cofidence;
however, I would be pleased to give you some input on methodology if you
can give me an idea of what you hope to achieve. I have listed below some
references I found useful when we first started and also would be
interested to hear the results of your list enquiry.

Kind regards
Sue Golding

Most recent reference titled, "High accuracy isotope dilution analysis for
the determination of ethanol using gas chromatography-combustion-isotope
ratio mass spectrometry" found in Journal "Analyst, 2000, 125, 2189-2195.
Authors are Celine Briche, Helena Hernandez, Gavin O'Connor, Ken Webb and
Tim Catterick.

I have others but they are not as new as this one and you may have already
reviewed them.

Dear Iain

I can give you some ball park figures on 13C and 2H for ethanol
and amyl alcohol.

If you need more detailed information, get in touch with Ian Begley
who has done most of the measurements I'm quoting:
Ian Begley <[log in to unmask]>
or Simon Kelly who is also doing this type of analysis:
Simon Kelly <[log in to unmask]>
.
Ethanol signatures from pure malt whisky range from -250 to -265
o/oo vs VSMOW and -25 to -26 o/oo vs PDB for delta2H and
delta13C, respectively. In Bourbon, you are looking at -225 o/oo
and -12 o/oo, respectively.

The 2H spread for amyl alcohol in pure malt whisky is pretty much
the same as found for ethanol. However, in Bourbon the d2H for
amyl alcohol and isobutanol are about -190 o/oo and -165 o/oo,
respectively.

Even in pure malts, the d2H signature of isobutanol is relatively
high, averaging around -200 o/oo. On the other hand, the d13C
signature of isobutanol in pure malts is more depleted, hovering
around the -30 o/oo mark.

Hope this helps as a first indicator.


Best regards,

                         Wolfram

Dear Iain,

you can find a lot of d-values (d13C, (intramolecular) d2H, d18O) of
ethanol and many other aliphatic substances (e.g. hexenol, isobutanol)
including comprehensive remarks on biosynthesis and isotope
fractionation (including many literature citations) in: H.-L. Schmidt et
al. (1998): Stable isotope ratio analysis in quality control of
flavourings. In: E. Ziegler, H. Ziegler (eds.): Flavourings. Wiley-VCH,
Chichester, pp.539-594
At the bottom of this mail you can also find the results of a short
literature research about isotopes and alcohols (not sorted in any
fashion).
Is your interest in ethanol mainly because of authenticity check? What
is "recent" in your sense?
Best regards

Roland
