What is Oleic Acid?
Oleic Acid (also known as cis-9 octadecenoic Acid) is an unsaturated, fatty acid which has a double-bond in natural oils. Pure Oleic Acid is an insoluble, colorless, and odorless liquid with high viscosity at room temperature. It is not soluble or soluble with water. However, it can be dissolved in alcohol, ether and chloroform. The structure of Oleic acid can be found in two forms: or. Oleic acid, a valuable fine chemical product, is also available. The industrial oleic acids can be used in plastics and washing as well as mineral processing and paint. Food, medicine and cosmetics can all use high-purity oil (80%). Surfactants, corrosion inhibitors and other applications of oleic acids’ metal salt are all common. Oleic acid may also be modified to use it in chemical analysis and other fields such as lubricating oils, pharmaceuticals, or any other related areas.
Oleic Acid Production Technology
There are many oils that contain oleic acid, including glycerides. There are two main methods to produce oleic acid: hydrolysis or saponification. Hydrolysis is the method of directly frying oils or fats, to make fatty acid, then extract them and process them for oleic. The saponification is the method to first saponify oils in alkaline conditions. Next, you will separate glycerol and acidify the soaps to create fatty acid, then remove and purify them. Oleic acid. Colloid production is straightforward by using acidification and saponification. Emulsification also occurs in acidification. This requires large amounts of salt water. To produce oleic, hydrolysis is more effective.
Oleic Acid Use in Industry
Alkali metal hydroxides react with oleic acid to make soaps, such as sodium oleate. All of these ingredients are excellent cleaning agents. They can all be used in detergents that are made for humans, textiles and industry. Liquid ammonia, perchloroethylene, and oleic acids can all be combined into tough surface cleaners. High-purity, oleic, can also be used in cosmetics like lipsticks, sunblocks, and lipsticks. You can increase the performance by adding an appropriate amount of oil to wood preservatives. Reagent-grade oleic Acid can also measure calcium and magnesium and qualitatively determine copper and ammonia. It can also measure volumetric analysis water hardness and colorimetrically measure iodine. Oleic acid can be used to process ink and tanning as well as cultural and educational supplies.
