Description

General description

2-Hexadecanone (Methyl tetradecyl ketone) is a long chain aliphatic ketone. It has been identified as one of the air borne volatile electroantennographic active compound released from the Hoplia equina females (scarab beetle). The analysis was obtained by gas chromatographic analysis.

2-Hexadecanone is reported to inhibit the fatty acid synthetase activity of Holtzman male rat liver. It is reported to reduce the serum cholesterol levels significantly without altering serum triglyceride levels in rats. It is reported as lipophilic compound, found in femoral secretions of male Schreiber′s green lizards, Lacerta schreiberi.

Application

2-Hexadecanone (Methyl tetradecyl ketone) may be used to compose the graphite suspension required for the fabrication of thick-cover spray-printed electrodes by spray-printing process. It may be used for the preparation of solid binding matrix (SBM)-based composite electrodes for the construction of simple amperometric biosensor for sensitive detection of various pH-sensitive redox-active compounds.

2-Hexadecanone is suitable for use in the preparation of solid binding matrix (SBM)-based composite electrodes, for constructing a biosensor for amperometric pH-sensing.
