Chromium(III) picolinate, a highly bioavailable compound, is known to be used for supplementing essential chromium(III) to human beings and animals. Two different methods were used to synthesize chromium(III) picolinate. The synthetic products were characterized by elemental analysis, FTI-IR, high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) and MALDI-MS.
