Sodium Caprate is the sodium salt of caproic acid, a 10-carbon saturated fatty acid. Sodium caprate is suitable for use as permeation enhancers in solid orals and other dosage forms and is
approved as a food additive in both the United States and European Union. The amphiphilic character of sodium caprate has allowed for its use as an agent for transport of molecules across cell membranes and the blood brain barrier. Product specifications, SDSs and certifications are available under Additional Information.
