Oleic Acid is an organic compound in the fatty acids class, containing one double bond between C9 and C10. It is an odorless, colorless liquid (commercial oil can have yellow/brown color) and the most common fatty acid in nature, although, as the great majority of fatty acids, it is usually found as an ester of glycerol, and not in its free state. Most oleic acid is derived from vegetable oil, such as in olive, palm, peanut and sunflower oil, and animal tallow.
