Cetylacetic acid is one of several major long-chain fatty acids that make up fats and oils. It is present in the form of glycerides in animal fats, oils, and some vegetable oils. These oils are hydrolyzed to give stearic acid.
Stearic acid is a kind of fatty acid widely found in nature. It has the chemical properties of common carboxylic acids. Almost all fats and oils contain stearic acid in different amounts. It is high in animal fat, such as in butter. 24%, less in vegetable oil, 0.8% in tea oil, 6% in palm oil, but up to 34% in cocoa butter.
Use of Cetylacetic acid
Mainly used in the production of stearates.
Widely used in cosmetics, plastic cold-resistant plasticizers, mold release agents, stabilizers, surfactants, rubber vulcanization accelerators, waterproofing agents, polishing agents, metal soaps, metal mineral flotation agents, softeners, pharmaceuticals and others. Organic chemicals.
In addition, it can also be used as a solvent for oil-soluble pigments, crayon smoothing agents, wax paper polishing agents, emulsifiers for stearic acid glycerides, etc.
Stearic acid plays an important role in the synthesis and processing of rubber. Stearic acid is a vulcanization active agent widely used in natural rubber, synthetic rubber and latex, and can also be used as a plasticizer and a softener. In the process of producing synthetic rubber, stearic acid is added as an emulsifier. In the manufacture of foam rubber, stearic acid can be used as a foaming agent, and stearic acid can also be used as a release agent for rubber products.
Stearic acid is used in emulsification of creams and cold creams to make it a stable whitening cream. Stearic acid is also the main raw material for the production of almond honey and milk. Stearic acid soap esters are more widely used in the cosmetic industry.
Octadecanoic acid is a kind of fatty acid widely found in nature. Almost all fats and oils contain stearic acid in different amounts. It is high in animal fat, such as 24% in butter and less in vegetable oil. Tea oil is 0.8%, palm oil is 6%, but cocoa butter is as high as 34%. The production methods of industrial stearic acid mainly include two methods of fractionation and pressing. A decomposing agent is added to the hardened oil, and then the crude fatty acid is hydrolyzed, and then washed, washed, and decolorized to obtain a finished product. At the same time by-product glycerin.
