Lauric Acid Analysis Service

Online Inquiry


Lauric Acid is a kind of saturated fatty acid, which is only 1-3% in the content of laurel oil. The high content of lauric acid in vegetable oil is found to be coconut oil, oil palm oil, babassu seed oil.

Lauric acid is mainly used in the production of alkyd resins, wetting agents, detergents, pesticides, surfactants, food additives and raw materials for cosmetics. Lauric acid is often used as a lubricant and has many functions such as a lubricant and a vulcanizing agent. Lauric acid is generally not used in plastic products such as wires and cables because of its corrosive effect on metals. Lauric acid is most widely used in the surfactant industry, but also in the fragrance industry and pharmaceutical industry.

Lauric Acid Analysis Service

According to the requirements of different samples, Creative Proteomics provides a series of lauric acid analysis services based on GC-MS. Mass spectrometry is a sensitive analytical technique that enables detection, identification and quantification of lauric acid by measuring its mass and characterizing its chemical structure, even at low abundance. MS instruments combine with gas chromatography (GC) to effectively separate organic molecules from complex samples. Our lauric acid analysis services can be applied to many industries, including biology, pharmaceuticals, agriculture, animal husbandry, food, nutrition, environment and other fields.

Service Workflow

To detect lauric acid, we follow the basic process shown below. At the same time, we will adjust the experimental method according to different natures of samples, since Creative Proteomics has developed multiple novel sample preparation techniques.
