Decanoic Acid Analysis Service

Online Inquiry


Medium-chain triglycerides (MCT) consist of medium-chain fatty acids (MCFA), mainly caprylic and capric acids. The unique metabolic properties make it an important lipid for improving various clinical conditions. Decanoic acid is a deca-carbon fatty acid found in small amounts in milk and goat's milk and in relatively high amounts in tropical oils and fats such as coconut oil and palm kernel oil. Decanoic acid is also a by-product of the hydrolysis of lauric acid in lauric, coconut or dogwood oils.

Decanoic Acid Analysis Service

Decanoic acid has strong antiviral and antibacterial properties. In the body, capric acid is converted to monocaprin, which helps fight viruses, bacteria and yeast Candida albicans. Decanoic acid may be closely related to the health effects of a ketogenic diet. Decanoic acid can reverse cellular changes in the body of patients with a variety of diseases, including cancer, epilepsy and neurodegenerative diseases. Decanoic acid from a ketogenic diet has been found to reduce the body's glucose and insulin signaling, thereby protecting the body against cellular alterations in a variety of diseases.

Decanoic acid is also used in the synthesis of flavors, fragrances and drugs. Decanoic acid fatty acid esters have a fruity flavor and are often used as fragrances. Other esters are used as wetting agents and food additives. Decanoic acid is also used as a raw material for plastic plasticizers and cationic fungicides.
