Simple Fatty Acids and Methyl Esters

Matreya offers an extensive list of highly purified straight chain, branched chain, polyunsaturated, hydroxy, and cyclopropane fatty acids and fatty acid methyl esters (FAMEs) for your research needs. Our team at Matreya brings many years of experience in organic synthetic chemistry allowing us to custom synthesize or extract from natural sources various fatty acids to help you meet your specific goals. In addition to individual fatty acids and methyl esters, Matreya offers a wide selection of FAME mixtures. All mixtures are in methyl ester form and are ready for GC analysis. Each methyl ester mixture is carefully prepared by weight and the composition is verified by gas chromatography. Our fatty acids have been used in cell and animal studies regarding nutrition, cell metabolism, disease research, and more.1,2
