Description

Product Description

Oleic acid is a mono-unsaturated omega-9 fatty acid created by dehydrogenation of stearic acid. It is then further dehydrogenated and elongated to create members of the n-9 family of fatty acids.

Application Notes

Oleic acid is used as emollient. Small amounts of oleic acid are used as an excipient in pharmaceuticals. It is used as an emulsifying or solubilizing agent in aerosol products. Oleic acid have been shown to be important for the growth and productivity of Chinese Hamster Ovary (CHO) cells. Functions of Oleic Acid in Cell Culture Systems: Long-term energy storage: energy derived from NADPH and ATP is stored in fatty acids. Fatty acids are esterified to a glycerol backbone to form a group of compounds known as mono-, di- and tri- glycerides (neutral fats). Energy is released when fatty acids are degraded.
