General description

Decane is a hydrocarbon which is categorized under the volatile organic compounds (VOCs) group of chemicals.

Application

Decane may be used as a reference standard for the identification of decane in a commercial paint thinner by gas chromatography (GC) with chemically modified multi-walled carbon nanotubes as stationary phase and in human blood by in-field liquid-liquid extraction with subsequent laboratory analysis using gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) and on-column large-volume injection.
It may be used as an extraction solvent of headspace single-drop microextraction (HS-SDME) with droplet derivatization for the determination of hexanal and heptanal in human blood by GC-MS.
Refer to the product′s Certificate of Analysis for more information on a suitable instrument technique. Contact Technical Service for further support.

Aromatic hydrocarbons are among the most important building blocks in the chemical industry. Benzene, toluene and xylenes are obtained from the high temperature thermolysis of alkanes. Higher alkylaromatics are generally derived from arene-olefin coupling, which gives branched products--that is, secondary...
