What is N-Decanoic Acid?

N-Decanoic Acid is a moderate carbon chain saturated fatty acid, which exists in a small amount in milk as well as goat milk, and is found in exotic oils such as coconut oil (n-decanoic acid web content is about 9%) and various other reasonably high material. N-Decanoic Acid and also its esters are primarily made use of in food, plastic ingredients, medication, chemical, chemical and also aviation markets, as well as can be utilized as tastes, artificial additive, lubricants, moisturizers, and so on. Wetting agents, plasticizers, foaming agents, antirust representatives, polymer modifiers, low and high temperature special oils, air travel oils, etc, have a large range of applications and an extremely encouraging market possibility.

Application and Preparation of N-Decanoic Acid


CN201810494281.9 provides a temperature-adjustable architectural decorative plastic composite film and a preparation method. The method first prepares graphene-modified phase-change microcapsules with melamine resin as the capsule material and N-Decanoic Acid and butyl stearate as the core material, and then adds them to the polyimide spinning solution, and spins and spunlace to make non-woven fabric, and then roll-coat the adhesive and bond the decorative film layer to make a temperature-adjustable architectural decorative plastic composite film. Compared with the traditional method, the architectural decorative plastic composite film prepared by the present invention mixes phase-change microcapsules with graphene-modified N-Decanoic Acid and butyl stearate as the core material and spinning solution to make a high The thermally conductive polyimide fiber significantly improves the mechanical properties and thermal conductivity of the composite film, and has good heat storage and temperature adjustment performance, which can play a certain buffer role in the heating and cooling process of the composite material and effectively reduce the temperature. fluctuation.


A preparation method of N-Decanoic Acid, comprising the steps of:

Mix sodium hydroxide and levulinic acid aqueous solution, heat to reflux, add furfural methanol solution dropwise, reflux and stir for 1 h, acidify with 5wt% hydrochloric acid aqueous solution, filter to take filter cake, wash with ice water, and recrystallize in hot water to obtain δ-furfuryl levulinic acid, wherein the molar ratio of levulinic acid to furfural is 5:3, and the molar ratio of sodium hydroxide to levulinic acid is 1.1:1;

Mix δ-furfuryllevulinic acid, platinum carbon, Zr(OTf)4, and acetic acid evenly. In a hydrogen atmosphere, adjust the hydrogen pressure to 100 atm, stir and heat up to 120°C, keep stirring for 48 hours, filter the filtrate, and distill under reduced pressure Obtain a solid; dissolve the solid in aqueous sodium hydroxide solution, add activated carbon for decolorization, filter the filtrate, adjust the pH to less than 2 with hydrochloric acid, filter the filter cake, and dry to obtain N-Decanoic Acid, wherein, δ-furfuryllevulinic acid , The molar ratio of Zr(OTf)4 is 10:1, and the molar ratio of platinum element in platinum carbon to δ-furfuryl levulinic acid is 1:1000.

Synthesis of N-Decanoic Acid

First, mix sodium hydroxide as well as levulinic acid aqueous option evenly, heat to reflux, include furfural methanol service dropwise, reflux as well as mix for 1 hour, acidify with 5wt% hydrochloric acid liquid solution, filter to take filter cake, laundry with ice water, warm water Recrystallize to get δ-furfuryl acetylpropionic acid, where the molar ratio of levulinic acid to furfural is 5:3, and also the molar proportion of sodium hydroxide to levulinic acid is 1.1:1; the δ-furfuryl acetyl Propionic acid, platinum carbon, Zr(OTf)4, as well as acetic acid are mixed evenly, in hydrogen, readjust the hydrogen pressure to 100 atm, stir and also warm up to 120 degrees Celsius, keep mixing for 2 days, filter the filtrate, and distill under decreased pressure to acquire a strong, and then obtain Liquify the solid in salt hydroxide aqueous solution, add triggered carbon to decolorize, filter and also take the filtrate, adjust the pH worth to less than 2 with hydrochloric acid, filter once again to take the filter cake, and also dry to get N-Decanoic Acid.

Ecological Information for N-Decanoic Acid

Manufacturing as well as use N-Decanoic Acid in esters of perfumes and fruit tastes, bases for wetting representatives, intermediates, plasticizers, resins, as well as intermediates as food-grade additives that may go through different waste streams launched into the setting. Capric acid has actually been discovered in the seeds of American elm (Ulmus americana) as well as mangosteen, lime oil and lemon oil, and also in all-natural oils in the form of glycerides. N-Decanoic Acid is a fatty acid discovered normally in many essential oils. Fats are commonly distributed in nature as components of pet and also veggie fats and are a vital part of the daily diet plan of creatures, birds as well as invertebrates. If released into the air, the vapor stress at 25 ° C is 3.66X10-4 mmHg, suggesting that N-Decanoic Acid will just exist in the ambience as a vapor. Hydroxyl radical; the reaction has actually an approximated half-life in air of 1.4 days. If launched into dirt, undissociated capric acid is anticipated to be somewhat mobile based on an approximated Koc of 4,000 for the complimentary acid. Capric acid has a pKa of 4.90, showing that the compound happens nearly specifically in the setting as anions, as well as anions usually do not adsorb extra highly to organic carbon-containing soils and clays than their neutral equivalents. Volatilization from damp dirt surface areas is not anticipated to be a significant destiny process based upon pKa. The 46% of academic body after 20 days with sewage inoculum and also 42% of theoretical BOD after 1 day with turned on sludge inoculum showed that biodegradation might be a vital ecological fate procedure in dirt. If launched right into water, undissociated capric acid would certainly be anticipated to adsorb to suspended solids and also debris based upon the estimated Koc of the free acid. Biodegradation of 100 ppm capric acid utilizing the Japanese cultivation approach was 100% in river water and 100% in seawater after 3 days, suggesting that biodegradation may be a vital ecological fate process in water. Volatilization from the water surface area is not anticipated to be based upon pKa It will certainly be a crucial destiny procedure. An approximated BCF of 3 suggests a low bioconcentration potential in water microorganisms. Hydrolysis is not anticipated to be an important environmental fate procedure due to the fact that the compound does not have useful groups that hydrolyze under ambient problems. Work exposure to N-Decanoic Acid might happen through breathing and dermal exposure to this substance in offices where capric acid is created or made use of. Security data suggest that the basic populace might be revealed to capric acid through inhalation of ambient air, intake of food and alcohol consumption water, and skin contact with this compound as well as other substances including N-Decanoic Acid.
