Hexanoic Acid Analysis Service

Online Inquiry

Hexanoic acid, also known as caproic acid, is a six-carbon linear carboxylic acid, naturally found in camphor, strawberry, coconut oil, bay leaf and goat milk. Hexanoic acid is a fatty acid, naturally found in animal fats and oils. It is one of the chemicals that cause the unpleasant smell of the skin of the fleshy seeds of ginkgo biloba. It is also a by-product of sugar butyric acid fermentation and protein oxidation.

Organic acids can adjust the taste to make the wine mellow and refreshing. The more important thing is that acid substances are precursor substances that form the corresponding ethyl ester flavor components. Different organic acids and alcohols produce different esters under the catalysis of microbial enzymes. Caproic acid can be used to produce various hexanoic acid ester products. In addition, hexanoic acid is often used as a food additive in food production.
