Squalene Usage And Synthesis
  • Chemical Propertiesclear colourless to faint yellow oil
  • UsesSqualene is a natural triterpene that plays an important role in the synthesis of cholesterol, steroid hormones, and vitamin D in the human body. Squalene is commonly used as a biochemical precursor i n the preparation of steroids. Squalene is also a natural moisturizer with low acute toxicity and is not significant human skin irritants or sensitizers.
  • Usescosmetic and pharmaceutical excipient
  • UsesBactericide; intermediate in manufacture of pharmaceuticals, organic coloring materials, rubber chemicals, aromatics and surface active agents.
  • DefinitionChEBI: A triterpene consisting of 2,6,10,15,19,23-hexamethyltetracosane having six double bonds at the 2-, 6-, 10-, 14-, 18- and 22-positions with (all-E)-configuration.
  • General DescriptionClear, slightly yellow liquid with a faint odor. Density 0.858 g / cm3.
  • Air & Water ReactionsMay become discolored on exposure to air. Insoluble in water.
  • Reactivity Profile(all-E)-2,6,10,15,19,23-Hexamethyl-2,6,10,14,18,22-tetracosahexaene is incompatible with strong oxidizing agents. .
  • Health HazardACUTE/CHRONIC HAZARDS: When heated to decomposition (all-E)-2,6,10,15,19,23-Hexamethyl-2,6,10,14,18,22-tetracosahexaene emits toxic fumes of carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide.
