Castor Oil, Turkey Red Oil, European The sebacic acid so obtained was a white, flaky material having a melting point of 1290-130° C. The capryl alcohol (octanol-2) was recovered from the fatty acid by-product by steam distillation. Sebacic acid can be synthesized (a) The process carried out as described in detail above, except that the reaction time was only one hour, gave a yield of sebacic acid of 35.8% by weight. Sebacic acid, compound with hexane-1,6-diamine (1:1) Regulatory process names 2 CAS names 1 IUPAC names 4 Other identifiers 1 Print infocard Open Brief Profile Sebacic Acid Market growth of sebacic acid is backed upon increasing lubricants demand in automotive and industrial â¦ Sebacic acid is produced from castor oil by cleavage of ricinoleic acid, which is obtained from castor oil. However, it can also be manufactured by heating Castor oil soap with 30% sodium carbonate. aromatics, antiseptics and painting materials. The process is based on the gage. Due to the fact that the reaction mixture remains in solution during the heating period, this process is particularly well adapted to large-scale use in a continuous manner in which a mixture of castor oil or ricinoleic acid and aqueous alkali is pumped through a suitable reaction vessel held at the desired temperature. and hydrolyzing the resulting dimethyl sebacate to produce sebacic acid. the traditional method uses castor oil as the starting point while a new method The sebacic acid obtained in this manner requires no further purification for most purposes. are used in a range of applications as well. Example 3 The process was carried out in a continuous manner by adding castor oil to 354 aqueous sodium hydroxide at such a rate that there was approximately 3.5 equivalents of alkali per each equivalent of ricinoleic acid content. In either case, the fatty acid material can be separated from the sebacic acid component by acidification to a pH of about 6.0, by means of a mineral acid such as sulfuric acid. Sebacic Acid can be used as a corrosion ... View the Specifications Epoxidized Soybean Oil (ESO) CAS# 8013-07-8. reported to yield sebacic acid with a higher purity. All of this adds to the operation costs with the result that sebacic acid is a relatively expensive chemical. is then cleaved to give capryl alcohol (2-octanol) and sebacic acid. The castor oil soap, which is first formed, sets to a rigid mass during the heating anq prevents effi80 cient stirring. 7 MANUFACTURING PROCESS 2-Octanol is mainly produced as a by-product of Sebacic Acid manufacturing process. In a batch process, the mixture of castor oil or ricinoleic acid and aqueous alkali is added to an autoclave which may then be heated up and held at the desired temperature, or the autoclave may be maintained at reaction temperature and the charge pumped in.
