In the palm oil industry, the iodine value is normally determined by a titration method that uses toxic solvents. An innovative method is proposed to quickly determine the iodine value of oil samples. This approach can provide statistically similar results to those given by traditional official procedures, with the advantages of being extremely rapid and environmentally friendly.
