Dear Abbie,

May I know what kind of product that you willing to know it's caffeine content? As far as I am concern, the most good thing to measure a complex chemical substance is by using HPLC. But I have a reference that mention how to conduct a caffeine analysis, in term of extracting it:
http://www.newton.de...0/chem00291.htm

Or, you want to see various decaffeination processes, which (I assume) can be modified into caffeine determination:
http://en.wikipedia..../Decaffeination

I have some info regarding caffeine content from various products too:

Hope might helps.


Regards,


Arya

hiya!
thanks for the links. Its for coffee, both instant and ground. I was wondering if we could do the analysis in the lab but I think the HPLC would be more accurate (just a little more expensive). Maybe we can try the one you sent me for monitoring purposes.

Greetings,

As i am looking for determination of caffeine in 3 in 1 coffee and cappuccino, luckily i got this thread where already discussions are going on...

If i receive any info from outside i will put it here, meantime I want to know how much caffeine is there in coffee products, the caffeine concentration is determined accurately by HPLC and NIR spectroscopy but all are very expensive. I am looking for simple and fast accurate method - like solvent extraction from coffee products or titration, etc.

please share if anyone has the same..
