Abstract:

Free oleic acid is emulsified in water and oxidized using potassium permanganate, to azelaic and pelargonic acids, together with dihydroxy-, ketohydroxy- and diketo-stearic acids at neutral pH. The yield and the products distribution are controlled by: the type of emulsifier and its concn.; the oleic acid concn. in the emulsion; and the oleic acid-oxidant ratio. [on SciFinder(R)]
