N-EICOSANE Usage And Synthesis
  • Chemical Propertiescolourless crystals or wax-like solid
  • UsesEicosane is a long chain saturated aliphatic hydrocarbon. Eicosane has a high flashpoint which makes it an inefficient fuel for use in the petrochemical industry. Eicosane is used to form candles and paraffin waxes with solar energy storage capacity.
  • General DescriptionColorless crystals or white crystalline solid.
  • Air & Water ReactionsInsoluble in water.
  • Reactivity ProfileSaturated aliphatic hydrocarbons, such as N-EICOSANE, may be incompatible with strong oxidizing agents like nitric acid. Charring of the hydrocarbon may occur followed by ignition of unreacted hydrocarbon and other nearby combustibles. In other settings, aliphatic saturated hydrocarbons are mostly unreactive. They are not affected by aqueous solutions of acids, alkalis, most oxidizing agents, and most reducing agents. When heated sufficiently or when ignited in the presence of air, oxygen or strong oxidizing agents, they burn exothermically to produce carbon dioxide and water.
  • Fire HazardN-EICOSANE is combustible.
  • Purification MethodsCrystallise eicosane from EtOH. [Beilstein 1 IV 563.]
