- ... Selenium (Se) is an essential element present in milk as seleno-amino acids and seleno-proteins. To perform an accurate seleno-amino acid analysis, a complete hydrolysis of proteins is necessary. Microwave-assisted acid hydrolysis (MAAH) can be used; however, some variables must be optimised to avoid incomplete hydrolysis and oxidation. Multivariate calibration showed that the volume of the reduci ...
