What is stearic acid? How to store it? Stearic acid, namely octadecanoic acid, has a simple structural formula of CH3 (CH2) 16COOH, which is produced by hydrolysis of oil and fat and is mainly used to produce stearate. Each gram is dissolved in 21ml ethanol, 5ml benzene, 2ml chloroform or 6ml carbon tetrachloride. It exists in flue-cured tobacco, burley tobacco, oriental tobacco and smoke. It is the fatty acid that makes up stearin. Chinese alias: octadecanoic acid; Octadecylic acid; Order of the Secretary; Aliphatic acid; Hard wax acid; Stearic acid; Octadecylic acid; Octadecylic acid, ammonium octadecanoate; Stearic acid and ammonium stearate. Properties and stability of stearic acid: pure products are white soft tablets with luster. Slightly soluble in cold water, soluble in alcohol and acetone, easily soluble in benzene, chloroform, ether, carbon tetrachloride, carbon disulfide, amyl acetate and toluene, non-toxic.
Is the hardening oil easy to be oxidized? Before hardening, there are unsaturated bonds in the molecules, which are easy to be oxidized by oxygen in the air and cause oil deterioration; It reacts with hydrogen and becomes hardened oil. Without unsaturated bond, it is not easy to be oxidized
Hardening oil is relatively stable to heat and can be mixed with other waxes to improve solvent resistance, oil resistance, hardness and melting point. It is used in cosmetics, lubricating grease, leather shoe oil, crayons and pharmaceuticals.
Storage method of stearic acid
Type 200 stearic acid is packed in cardboard boxes. Type 800 stearic acid is packed in woven bags lined with plastic bags. Store in a cool and ventilated place. It can be packed in cardboard boxes or woven bags lined with plastic bags. The net weight of each box (bag) is 25kg or 50kg. Store in a cool, dry and ventilated place, and keep away from fire sources and oxidants. Store and transport according to general chemical regulations.
