HEPTADECANOIC ACID Usage And Synthesis
  • DescriptionHeptadecanoic acid, or margaric acid, is a saturated fatty acid. Its molecular formula is CH3(CH2)15COOH. It occurs as a trace component of the fat and milkfat of ruminants, but it does not occur in any natural animal or vegetable fat at concentrations over half a percent. Salts and esters of heptadecanoic acid are called heptadecanoates.
  • Chemical Propertiesoff-white powder
  • UsesHeptadecanoic acid is a saturated fatty acid and occurs as a trace component of the fat in ruminants.
  • UsesMargaric acid (Heptadecanoic acid, C17) may be used as a reference during the analysis of medium-chain fatty acids from biomaterials such as seed oils and plant and animal oils.
  • DefinitionChEBI: A C17 saturated fatty acid and trace component of fats in ruminants.
  • Synthesis Reference(s)Synthetic Communications, 20, p. 3359, 1990 DOI: 10.1080/00397919008051571
  • Purification MethodsCrystallise the acid from MeOH or pet ether. [Beilstein 2 IV 1193.]
