Application

Maltol may be used as an analytical reference standard for the quantification of the analyte in:
  • Synthetic and commercial food samples using UV–Vis spectrophotometry with chemometrics methods.
  • Food and beverage matrices using FIA-direct chemiluminescence procedure.

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