What is the correct German name for "Monolaurin" (C15H30O4)?

I have found "Laurinsäure" (C12H24O2) but this is a different substance. These two substances have a relation to each other but again, these are completely different.

It seems many languages have trouble translating these two words but it must have an official translation, right?

  • Sounds pretty much like many chemicals in German, Sacharin, Amphetamin, Histamin, Bakin, ...source is English, I guess, but behind that, academic, modern Latin? – user unknown Mar 7 '17 at 11:23
  • My guess is that Monolaurin itself is perfectly fine in German but I have to be sure. The answer below by @IQV confirms this even more. The exact source is unknown to me. – Tristan .L Mar 7 '17 at 11:29
