General description

Behenic acid is a saturated fatty acid with cholesterol-raising ability in humans.
This substance is listed on the positive list of the EU regulation 10/2011 for plastics intended to come into contact with food.

Application

Behenic acid may be used as a reference standard for the determination of behenic acid in biological samples by electron ionization-gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (EI-GC-MS), in Amazonian palm berry, Euterpe oleraceae Mart. (Acai) by reversed phase high performance liquid chromatography (RP-HPLC) with MS, and in commercial edible oilseeds by transmethylation followed by analysis using GC combined with flame ionization detector (FID).
Refer to the product′s Certificate of Analysis for more information on a suitable instrument technique. Contact Technical Service for further support.
