How to store fatty acids stock in nitrogen environment
Posted 27 May 2009 - 10:39 AM
1. How can you make "nitrogen environment"? Do I have to use liquid nitrogen?
2. Fatty acids are easily oxidized. Is it okay to dissolve the fatty acids powder in room temp? Are there special handling tips for making stock solutions?
Thank you for your help in advance!

This usually worked quite well judging from HPLC and colorimetric diene or MDA assays.
Be sure to have a container and buffers that do NOT contain redox metals though! Usually this means Chelex-ing your buffers.
