Oleic Acid
C18H34O2

Railway tank cars, tank trucks, containers, ships, and aircraft are used for transporting liquid fatty acids. Stainless steel and aluminum are the construction materials normally used for storage and transportation. Storage and transport temperature should be slightly above the solidification point. Oleic acid is flammable (flash point at 189 °C) in its liquid and vapor form, so it should be transported and stored away from heat sources. It has a melting point at 13 °C, so in colder regions it can be found in its solid form (with no additives). Nonetheless, oleic acid is very little toxic. Furthermore, special labeling and handling are not required.

Raw materials and the respective production processes employed in the manufacturing of Oleic Acid are listed below.

  • Natural oil/fatty acids (palm, rapeseed, tallow) (fractionation),
  • Palm acid (selective crystallization),
  • Tail oil fatty acid (solvent crystallization)

The uses and applications of Oleic Acid may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Oleic Acid are United States Pharmacopeia grade (USP, 99% minimum purity); Food Chemical Codex (FCC) grade (or natural grade); technical grade (varying from 60 to 90% purity, most common being 90%); and free of chicken edema factor (for uses in the food industry).
