Stearic acid formula CH3 (CH2) nCOOH its main ingredients for hexadecenoic 18 carbon unsaturated acid, the appearance of white or white waxy or crystalline solids, soluble in ethanol, ether, chloroform, carbon disulfide and other solvents, insoluble in water.
Preparation or sources
Industrial production of oil hydrolysis.
Stearic acid in the form of glycerides tallow imitation, oil and some vegetable oils, these oils by hydrolysis derived stearic acid.
Stearic acid is a fatty acid nature widespread, almost all the oils have varying concentrations of stearic acid, with higher levels of animal fat content of up to 24%, such as butter, vegetable oil content of less 0.8%, tea, palm oil 6%, but the content is as high as 34% cocoa butter.
Production methods for industrial stearic acid fractionation and press. Hardened oil decomposition agent, and then hydrolysis of crude fatty acids, and then washed, distillation, decolorization is finished. Byproduct glycerol.
