Description

General description

Decanoic acid (DA) is a saturated medium-chain (10 carbons) fatty acid primarily used in the manufacture of plastics, cosmetics, and lubricants. DA is naturally found in coconut and palm oil.

Application

• Decanoic acid (DA) may be used as an analytical standard for the determination of the analyte in tobacco by coupling needle-based derivatization headspace liquid-phase microextraction with gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (HS-LPME/GC-MS).
• Decanoic acid (DA) may also be used as a reference standard for the determination of the analyte (DA) in water samples by a method based on continuous solid-phase extraction and gas chromatography–mass spectrometry (GC–MS).

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