General description

Potassium sorbate is potassium salt of sorbic acid. Qualitative and quantitative estimation of potassium sorbate in foods and beverages by high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) followed by UV diode array detection (HPLC-UV) and LC-MS/MS (Liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry) have been proposed.

In this study, poly(styrene-co-N-methacryloyl-l-phenylalanine methyl ester)-functionalized magnetic nanoparticles were constructed and used as magnetic solid-phase extraction sorbents for analysis of food preservatives in beverages. To prepare the poly(amino acid)-based sorbents, N-methacryloyl-l-phenylalanine methyl ester, and styrene served as the functional monomers...
