Organic acids

Organic acids

A new Liquid Chromatography–Mass Spectrometry (LC–MS) method, with high sensitivity and selectivity, has been developed for the analysis of a range of organic acids in beverages.

The method can analyse for malic, tartaric, lactic, succinic, citric, benzoic and ascorbic acid and has been designed to take into account the differing levels of acid found in most drinks. The new service provides greater selectivity by isolating characteristic signals unique to each acid reducing the possibility of incorrect assignment from other acids or interfering background components. All acids can be detected down to 0.2ppm.

We will be complementing this LC–MS suite of analysis with the addition of Ion Chromatography analyses for acetic, formic and oxalic acid.

Method:LC–MS/ Ion Chromatography
