Description of 12-hydroxystearic acid
Dodecyl stearic acid, also known as 12-hydroxystearic acid, is insoluble in water but soluble in ethanol, ether, and chloroform.
12-hydroxystearic acid is prepared by hydrogenation of cis-ricinic acid.
12-hydroxystearic acid is a white, flaky, or acicular crystalline solid at room temperature and pressure, with remarkable acidity, insoluble in water, and soluble in ethanol, ether, and chloroform.

Uses of 12-hydroxystearic acid
1.12-hydroxystearic acid mainly produces high-temperature resistant, high-quality lithium base grease. It can also make textile lubricants, insulation mixtures, shoe polish, polish, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, coatings, metal processing oil, etc. It has good lubrication performance, can reduce the friction and wear of the metal surface, and can extend the service life of mechanical equipment. 12-hydroxystearic acid can reduce the viscosity and viscosity of the lubricant and improve the lubrication effect; it is widely used in the manufacture of lubricating oil, cutting fluid, coolant, and other industrial lubricants.
2.12-hydroxystearic acid has good thickening, emulsification, stability, and lubrication properties, which can enhance the texture and elasticity of cosmetics. It is often used as an important ingredient in skin care products. It also has moisturizing and antioxidant functions.
3.12-hydroxystearic acid is used in the coatings and ink industry. Excellent thickening and emulsifying properties improve the viscosity and stability of coatings and inks. It can also enhance the adhesion and durability of the coating and improve its gloss and waterproof performance.
4.12-hydroxystearic acid can be blended with plastics to enhance their toughness and heat resistance. Improve plastics' melting fluidity and molding properties, making plastic products easier to process and form, such as processing plastic film and plastic packaging materials.
5.12-hydroxystearic acid can be used in electronics and electrical synthesis of polymer materials as an encapsulation material for electronic components, providing protection and insulation functions.
