Safety Information
Methyl Oleate Usage And Synthesis
  • Chemical Propertiescolourless liquid
  • UsesIntermediate for detergents, emulsifiers, wet-ting agents, stabilizers, textile treatment, plasti-cizers for duplicating inks, rubbers, waxes, etc.;biochemical research, chromatographic referencestandard.
  • DefinitionChEBI: A fatty acid methyl ester resulting from the formal condensation of the carboxy group of oleic acid with methanol.
  • General DescriptionClear to amber liquid. Insoluble in water.
  • Air & Water ReactionsInsoluble in water.
  • Reactivity ProfileEsters, such as (Z)-9-Octadecenoic acid methyl ester, react with acids to liberate heat along with alcohols and acids. Strong oxidizing acids may cause a vigorous reaction that is sufficiently exothermic to ignite the reaction products. Heat is also generated by the interaction of esters with caustic solutions. Flammable hydrogen is generated by mixing esters with alkali metals and hydrides
  • Fire HazardCombustible
  • Safety ProfileQuestionable carcinogen with experimental tumorigenic data by skin contact. When heated to decomposition it emits acrid smoke and irritating fumes
  • Purification MethodsPurify the oleate by fractional distillation under reduced pressure, and by low temperature crystallisation from acetone. Store it in the dark under N2. [Beilstein 2 IV 1649.]
