About Organic Acids

Organic acids refer to some organic compounds with acidity. The most common organic acid is carboxylic acid (R-COOH), and its acidity is derived from the carboxyl group (-COOH). Sulfonic acid (R-SO3H), sulfinic acid (R-SOOH) and thiocarboxylic acid (R-SH) are also organic acids.

Common organic acids in plants include aliphatic mono-, di-, and polycarboxylic acids, such as tartaric acid, oxalic acid, malic acid, citric acid, ascorbic acid (vitamin C), and so on. Aromatic organic acids such as benzoic acid, salicylic acid, caffeic acid, etc.

MS-based technical means can realize the qualitative and quantitative analysis of organic acids.

Technical Route of Targeted Metabolomics of Organic Acids

Technical Route of Targeted Metabolomics of Organic Acids

Technical Features

  • High sensitivity
  • Based on an advanced mass spectrometry platform, the sensitivity can reach PG level.

  • Quantitative accuracy
  • Choose the optimal ion pair to ensure accurate quantification of the substance.

  • Strict quality control
  • 1) Blank: Remove residual impurities in the instrument, provide a stable detection environment, and also monitor the stability of the instrument.

    2) Mixed standard: Mixed standard mainly monitors the stability of the instrument.

    3) Random sample repetition: monitor the stability of the entire extraction process.
