Myristic Acid Analysis Service

Online Inquiry

Myristic acid (MA, C14:0), also known as tetradecanoic acid, is a saturated fatty acid derived from nutmeg. Myristic acid has excellent antibacterial properties and is often used to treat deficiency diarrhea, cold diarrhea, bloating and abdominal pain, indigestion, and other symptoms. In animal tissues, myristic acid is usually only a small part of the total fatty acid content, however, it is more abundant in milk fat, coconut meat and palm oil.

In industry, myristic acid is mainly used as a raw material for the production of surfactants, for the production of sorbitan fatty acid esters, glycerol fatty acid esters, ethylene glycol or propylene glycol fatty acid esters. It is also used in the production of isopropyl myristate, etc.

Creative Proteomics uses high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), liquid-mass spectrometry (LC-MS), and gas-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) techniques to efficiently and accurately detect changes in myristic acid content. In addition, we also provide other fatty acid assay services to meet your different needs.
