Hydrocarbons, an important part of the minor constituents belonging to vegetable oils are reviewed. Their importance, origin, characterization and detection in edible vegetable oils are considered. The determination of some of them as a means of establishing oil quality and genuineness is also highlighted. The official methodologies, as well as the most commonly procedures used for isolation and analysis are reviewed. Furthermore, novel procedures applying new techniques for determining those compounds are also presented.
