General description

Hexanal is an oxidation product of linoleic acid and is a dominant volatile aldehyde. It could work as an indicator of lipid oxidation for cooked meat and meat flavor deterioration.

Application

It was used as standard for measuring lipid peroxidation in rat liver samples using headspace GC analysis.
