Formic acid solution can be used to study biological buffers and buffer solutions. Formic acid solution has been used in a study to develop a sensitive and easy analytical method for catecholamine metabolites including 4-hydroxy-3-methoxyphenylglycol sulfate (HMPG sulfate), vanillylmandelic acid (VMA) and homovanillic acid (HVA) determination. Formic acid solution has also been used in a study to develop a method for the determination of the eight quinolones of veterinary use regulated by the European Union.

Following subarachnoid haemorrhage the most significant complication is sustained cerebral vascular contraction (vasospasm), which may result in terminal brain damage from cerebral infarction. Despite this, the biochemical cause of vasospasm remains poorly understood. In this study, the global high-concentration metabolite...
