Caprylic acid is also known as octanoic acid. Request Sample Copy of this Report at: https://www.adroitmarketresearch.com/contacts/request-sample/708 The global caprylic acid market size is estimated to reach USD 3.11 million by 2025 driven by its antifungal and antimicrobial properties.
Some other fatty acids were found in both fractions at < 5% as octanoic acid, octadecadienoic acid, linoleic acid, oleic acid and arachidonic acid at 0.012, 3.209, 1.404 and 3.857% in fraction 3 comparing with 1.369, 0.647, 1.563 and 0.981% in fraction 4.
Octanoic acid, decanoic acid, myristic acid, and palmitic acid displayed bacteriostatic activity but were not bactericidal under the conditions of the testing.
Remarkably, acetic acid, 2-methyl butyric acid, and octanoic acid were only identified in pasteurized watermelon juice, which could result from the thermal treatments.
Thus, this study was carried out to determine the adsorption characteristics between organic acids (octanoic acid and hexanoic acid) and phenolic compounds (rutin, scopoletin, and quercetin) onto a weakly basic ion exchange resin using a model system.
By doing so the following molecules were derived: octanoic acid ([CH.sub.3]([CH.sub.2])6COOH), 1-octanal ([CH.sub.3][([CH.sub.2]).sub.6]CHO), 2-octanone ([CH.sub.3][([CH.sub.2]).sub.5]CO[CH.sub.3]) and n-octane ([CH.sub.3][([CH.sub.2]).sub.6][CH.sub.3]).
Three acids were quantified: hexanoic acid (1.0[micro]g [L.sup.-1]), octanoic acid (44.8[micro]g [L.sup.-1]), and decanoic acid (34.5[micro]g [L.sup.-1]).

A total of 35 types of fatty acid were detected but octanoic acid, tridecanoic acid, myristoleic acid, pentadecenoic acid, elaidic acid, linoleic acid, a-linolenic acid, docosadienoic acid, nervonic acid, and docosahexaenoic acid were not detected (Table 2).
Organic acids that have been characterized in yoghurt include acetic acid (vinegary, pungent, acidic flavour), hexanoic acid (pungent, rancid), octanoic acid (waxy, soapy, rancid, musty flavour) and decanoic acid (rancid flavour) [13, 14].
