    Please could I get some help on this question:
    Describe how you could compare the degree of unsaturation in sunflower oil and olive oil.

    I mean sunflower oil is polyunsaturated and olive oil is monounsaturated but I don't know how I would test this. Is there anything to do with hydrogenation?

    Titration with bromine water, stop at the point where bromine water is no longer decolourised. The more bromine water needed the greater the degree of unsaturation.
