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.
Refer to the product′s Certificate of Analysis for more information on a suitable instrument technique. Contact Technical Service for further support.

Breast cancer (BC) remains the most commonly diagnosed malignancy in women. We investigated 4 straight aldehydes in the exhaled breath as potential early BC diagnostic biomarkers. End-tailed breath were collected by Bio-VOC® sampler and assayed by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry. Kruskal-Wallis...

Omega-3 fatty acids (FAs) have been shown to prevent cardiovascular disease. The most commonly used omega-3 fatty acids like eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) are highly vulnerable to oxidation and therefore, have short shelf life. Recent advances in...
