What is Dodecanoic Acid?

Lauric acid, also called dodecanoic acid, is a saturated fatty acid with 12 carbon atoms. It is white needle-like crystal at area temperature level, with a minor scent of laurel oil. Insoluble in water, soluble in methanol, ether, chloroform along with countless various other all-natural solvents, rather soluble in acetone and oil ether.
The largest duty of lauric acid is its antimicrobial capacity, which can enhance resistance. Many people discover that after taking lauric acid, the antiviral capability is substantially improved, such as influenza, high temperature, herpes, etc, lauric acid also It can reduce antibiotic resistance, decrease heart problem threat, and also more. For girls, one of the advantages of lauric acid is skin treatment. Researches have located that its skin treatment result is far better than some popular cosmetics.

Dodecanoic Acid Uses

1. Dodecanoic Acid is generally made use of as a basic material for the manufacturing of alkyd resins, moistening agents, detergents, insecticides, surfactants, food additives as well as cosmetics. This product is usually made use of as a lubricating substance and has multiple functions such as lubricant and vulcanizing representative. Nevertheless, because of its harsh impact on metals, it is typically not utilized in plastic products such as cords as well as cable televisions. This item is most widely utilized in the surfactant industry, and also can additionally be used in the fragrance market and also pharmaceutical market.
2. Dodecanoic Acid is utilized as an area treatment agent for the preparation of adhesives. It is additionally made use of in the manufacture of alkyd products, chemical fiber oils, chemicals, synthetic fragrances, plastic stabilizers, anti-corrosion active ingredients for gasoline in addition to likewise lubing oils. It is thoroughly used in the manufacture of countless type of surfactants, such as cationic laurylamine, lauryl nitrile, trilaurylamine, lauryl dimethylamine, lauryl trimethylammonium salt, etc; anionic kinds consist of salt lauryl sulfate, Lauric acid sulfate ester salt, lauryl sulfate triethanol ammonium salt, and more; zwitterionic kinds include lauryl betaine, lauric acid imidazoline, and more; nonionic surfactants include poly L-alcohol monolaurate, polyoxyethylene lauryl Ester, glyceryl laurate polyoxyethylene ether, lauric acid diethanolamide, and more. Additionally, it is likewise taken advantage of as a preservative and also in the manufacture of cosmetics.
3. Dodecanoic Acid is a raw material for creating soap, cleaning agent, aesthetic surfactant and likewise chemical fiber oil.

Production Method of Dodecanoic Acid

Commercial production techniques can be classified right into 2 groups: one is gotten from natural veggie oils with saponification or decomposition under heat and pressure; the other is divided from synthetic fatty acids. Japan primarily generates lauric acid from coconut oil and also palm bit oil. The natural veggie oils utilized to make dodecanoic acid include: coconut oil, litsea cubeba bit oil, palm kernel oil and hill pepper kernel oil, etc. To name a few plants, such as hand kernel oil, rub tree seed oil, camphor tree seed oil, and so on, can likewise be used to create dodecanoic acid in the solution industry. The C12 portion continuing to be from the removal of dodecanoic acid contains a big amount of dodecenoic acid, which can be hydrogenated at normal pressure without a driver, and also can be transformed to dodecanoic acid at a conversion rate of greater than 86%.

Ecological Information for Dodecanoic Acid

The manufacturing and also use of dodecanoic acid in alkylated materials, moistening representatives, soaps, cleaning agents, cosmetics, food additives can bring about its launch right into the environment with different waste streams. It might be utilized in esters as an inert ingredient in pesticides, which would result in its straight launch right into the environment. Lauryl Acid is a natural constituent of Juniper Important Oil, Citrus Oil, Coconut Oil, Areca Butter, Holoptelea integrifolia Seed Oil as well as Strawberry. Lauryl acid is a fatty acid that happens naturally in many crucial oils. Fats are extensively dispersed in nature as elements of pet as well as veggie fats as well as are a vital part of the day-to-day diet of creatures, birds and invertebrates. If launched to air, the vapor stress at 25 ° C is 1.6X10-5 mm Hg, showing that dodecanoic acid will certainly exist in both the vapor and bit phases in the environment. Vapor-phase dodecanoic acid is broken down in the environment by response with photochemically produced hydroxyl radicals; the half-life of this reaction in air is estimated to be 27 hours. The particulate stage dodecanoic acid will be removed from the environment by wet or completely dry deposition. With an estimated Koc of 7,600 for undissociated based upon complimentary acid, dodecanoic acid is not expected to be mobile if released to soil. Dodecanoic acid has a pKa of 5.3, indicating that this compound takes place nearly solely in the setting as an anion, which normally does not adsorb more strongly than its neutral counterpart to soils including natural carbon as well as clay. Volatilization from damp soil surface areas is not anticipated to be a significant destiny process based on pKa. In the Warburg respirometer making use of the activated sludge inoculum, the one-day academic figure of dodecanoic acid was 6.1%, and also the TOC in the activated sludge was decreased by 100% within 100 hrs, suggesting the biodegradation of dodecanoic acid It is an essential environmental location water in the soil as well as the atmosphere. If launched right into water, undissociated dodecanoic acid is expected to adsorb to put on hold solids as well as sediments based on the estimated Koc of the cost-free acid. The pKa shows that dodecanoic acid exists almost specifically as an anion at pH 5 to 9, so volatilization from the water surface is not anticipated to be a significant fate procedure. A BCF of 255 in zebrafish (zebrafish) suggests a high bioconcentration in water organisms, supplied the substance is not metabolized by the organism. Hydrolysis is not anticipated to be a vital environmental fate procedure since the substance lacks useful teams that hydrolyze under ambient conditions. Occupational Exposure Dodecanoic acid might be created by skin contact with this compound in work environments where it is generated or used. Security information show that the basic populace might be exposed to dodecanoic acid with inhalation of ambient air, consumption of food and also drinking water, and also skin contact with this substance or other products including dodecanoic acid.
