Gluconolactone Analysis Service

Gluconolactone Analysis Service

Professional Gluconolactone Analysis That Exceeding Your Expectations

Gluconolactone, a naturally occurring compound, is abundantly present in various food sources including honey, alcoholic beverages, jams, yogurt, and ice cream. It belongs to the lactone family as a cyclic derivative of glucose. Gluconolactone finds extensive applications in both food and cosmetic research where it serves as an antioxidant, acidulant, and moisturizer due to its remarkable properties. CD BioGlyco has been focusing on providing professional and comprehensive Pharmaceutical Analysis Services for many years, we trust that our specialized gluconolactone analysis services will facilitate advancements in your research.

We analyze gluconolactone qualitatively, and quantitatively by using a variety of instrumentation and chemical reagents.

  • In our analytical procedure, we frequently employ methodologies like chromatography, mass spectrometry, and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR). We use chromatography to efficiently separate the different components of a mixture and a detector to determine the amount of gluconolactone. More precise structural information is then obtained by mass spectrometry, where the composition and structure are inferred by measuring the signals generated by the interactions between ions or fragment ions in the sample. Additionally, we employ NMR to confirm the structure of gluconolactone and provide information on the chemical environment and chemical shifts of gluconolactone.
  • In addition to the common techniques described above, we use other methods to assist in the analysis of gluconolactone and to deduce the properties of your samples, depending on the actual conditions of your samples. The technologies include spectroscopic methods such as infrared spectroscopy (IR), ultraviolet-visible spectroscopy (UV-Vis), and electrochemical methods such as cyclic voltammetry (CV) and differential pulse voltammetry (DPV).

Results: This article focuses on the biocatalytic synthesis of δ-gluconolactone and ε-caprolactone and the analytical methods for the products. The researchers used a specific enzyme to catalyze the synthetic reaction of these two lactones. By optimizing the reaction conditions, they successfully synthesized a copolymer of δ-gluconolactone and ε-caprolactone. This copolymer shows promise in the development of environmentally-friendly plastics and other materials that can be easily broken down. The main finding of the article is that this biocatalytic synthesis method can synthesize copolymers of δ-gluconolactone and ε-caprolactone efficiently and with good controllability and tunability.
