General description

Methyl decanoate, also known as methyl caprate, is a decanoate ester and belongs to the group of fatty acid methyl esters (FAMEs). It is naturally found in Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Astragalus mongholicus, Achillea millefolium, and others.

Application

This analytical standard can also be used as follows:

  • Gas chromatography-tandem differential mobility spectrometry (DMS) based separation and quantification of 16 methyl- and ethyl- fatty acid esters from biodiesel samples
  • Development and validation of a gas chromatography-flame ionization (GC-FID) method to determine fatty acid methyl esters (FAMEs) in beer wort samples following their solid phase extraction and BF3 based methylation
  • Multi-residue analysis of 76 volatile compounds from jujube extract samples by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) after their extraction by steam distillation combined with drop-by-drop extraction
  • Comparative analysis of gas chromatography-combustion-mass spectrometry and gas chromatography-flame ionization detector methods for the determination of fatty acid methyl esters (FAMEs) in biodiesel samples
  • Identification and quantification of fatty acids in walnut and coconut oil samples by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) after their methyl esterification by BF3-MeOH method
  • Simultaneous determination of fatty acids in bovine colostrum samples by GC-FID after their derivatization to ester forms using an acidic catalyst boron trifluoride
