Maltose has been partially acetylated from the reaction of melted maltose and acetic anhydride without solvent and catalyst to produce maltocyl acetate with the yield of 67%. Lauryc acid can be methanolized using H2SO4 as the catalyst to produce methyl laurate with the yield of 92%. The transesterification of methyl laurate and maltocyl acetate in methanol using sodium methoxyde as the catalyst at reflux, yielded a novel compound dilauroyl maltose after isolated by column chromatography, with the yield of 59%. Methyl laurate, maltocyl acetate, and dilauroyl maltose were confirmed by FT-IR and 'H-NMR spectroscopy, and the surface tension of dilauroyl maltose solution  was determined by Du-Nuoy tensiometer to obtain the HLB value of 2.67.
