Fatty Acids are organic, monobasic acids derived from hydrocarbons by the equivalent of oxidation of a methyl group to an alcohol, aldehyde, and then acid. Fatty acids are saturated and unsaturated (fatty acids, unsaturated).

Our company offers ricinoleic acids, dehydrated castor fatty acids, and oleic acids, such as white olein and red oils.

Fatty Acids - Oleic Acids -- WHC 401

The OLEIC ACID, QsHaA, or C8HI7-CH:CH- [CH2]7 CO2 H, is an organic acid occurring as a glyceride, triolein, in nearly all fats, and in many oils, olive, almond, cod-liver, etc.

It appears as a by-product in the manufacture of candles. To prepare oleic acid, the olive oil is saponified with potash, and lead acetate added; the lead salts are separated, dried, and extracted with ether, which dissolves the lead oleate; the solution is then treated with hydrochloric acid, the lead chloride filtered off, the liquid concentrated, and finally distilled under diminished pressure.

Oleic acid is a colorless, odourless solid, melting at 14 and boiling at 223 (10 mm.). On exposure it turns yellow, becoming rancid. Nitric acid oxidizes it to all the fatty acids from acetic to capric. Nitrous acid gives the isomeric elaidic acid, C8H17-CH:CH-(CH2]7-C02H, which is crystalline and melts at 51. Hydriodic acid reduces both oleic and elaidic acids to stearic acid.
