General description

5-(Hydroxymethyl)furfural is an organic compound, widely spread in food products and is formed in sugar containing food when exposed to heat. It is widely used as an indicator of quality in food products. It is also employed to indicate the adulteration of food products with acid converted invert syrups.

Application

5-(Hydroxymethyl)furfural has been used as a standard in the high performance liquid chromatographic (HPLC) analysis for the determination of 5-(hydroxymethyl)furfural content in co-hydrolysates and fermentation broth of lignocellulosic biomass for the lipid accumulation in M. isabellina type of microorganisms. 5-(Hydroxymethyl)furfural may be used as an analytical reference standard for the quantification of the analyte in vinegar and fruit juice samples using chromatography techniques.
Refer to the product′s Certificate of Analysis for more information on a suitable instrument technique. Contact Technical Service for further support.
