EDENOR C12-99 MY (LAURIC ACID), systematically dodecanoic acid, is a saturated fatty acid with a 12-carbon atom chain, thus having many properties of medium-chain fatty acids, is a bright white, powdery solid with a faint odor of bay oil or soap.
The salts and esters of EDENOR C12-99 MY (LAURIC ACID) are known as laurates.
EDENOR C12-99 MY (LAURIC ACID) is a medium-length long-chain fatty acid, or lipid, that makes up about half of the fatty acids within coconut oil.
EDENOR C12-99 MY (LAURIC ACID)’s a powerful substance that is sometimes extracted from the coconut for use in developing monolaurin.
Monolaurin is an antimicrobial agent that is able to fight bacteria, viruses, yeasts, and other pathogens.
Because you can’t ingest EDENOR C12-99 MY (LAURIC ACID) alone (it’s irritating and not found alone in nature), you’re most likely to get it in the form of coconut oil or from fresh coconuts.
Though coconut oil is being studied at a breakneck pace, much of the research doesn’t pinpoint what in the oil is responsible for its reported benefits.
Still, a 2015 analysis suggests that many of the benefits tied to coconut oil are directly linked to lauric acid.
Among the benefits, they suggest EDENOR C12-99 MY (LAURIC ACID) could aid weight loss and even protect against Alzheimer’s disease.
EDENOR C12-99 MY (LAURIC ACID)'s effects on blood cholesterol levels still need to be clarified.
This research suggests that the benefits of lauric acid are due to how the body uses it.
The majority of EDENOR C12-99 MY (LAURIC ACID) is sent directly to the liver, where Lauric acid’s converted to energy rather than stored as fat.
When compared with other saturated fats, EDENOR C12-99 MY (LAURIC ACID) contributes the least to fat storage.
EDENOR C12-99 MY (LAURIC ACID) is a medium-chain saturated fatty acid.
EDENOR C12-99 MY (LAURIC ACID) has been found at high levels in coconut oil.
EDENOR C12-99 MY (LAURIC ACID) induces the activation of NF-κB and the expression of COX-2, inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS), and IL-1α in RAW 264.7 cells when used at a concentration of 25 μM.
ChEBI: A straight-chain, twelve-carbon medium-chain saturated fatty acid with strong bactericidal properties; the main fatty acid in coconut oil and palm kernel oil.
Like many other fatty acids, EDENOR C12-99 MY (LAURIC ACID) is inexpensive, has a long shelf-life, and is non-toxic and safe to handle.
EDENOR C12-99 MY (LAURIC ACID) is mainly used for the production of soaps and cosmetics.
For these purposes, EDENOR C12-99 MY (LAURIC ACID) is neutralized with sodium hydroxide to give sodium laurate, which is a soap.
Most commonly, sodium laurate is obtained by saponification of various oils, such as coconut oil.
These precursors give mixtures of sodium laurate and other soaps.
EDENOR C12-99 MY (LAURIC ACID) occurs as a white crystalline powder with a slight odor of bay oil.
EDENOR C12-99 MY (LAURIC ACID) has a fatty odor.
EDENOR C12-99 MY (LAURIC ACID) is a common constituent of most diets; large doses may produce gastrointestinal upset.
Colorless needle-like crystals.
Soluble in methanol, slightly soluble in acetone and petroleum ether.
1.EDENOR C12-99 MY (LAURIC ACID) used for the preparation of alkyd resins, as well as wetting agents, detergents and pesticides
2. Used as defoamer; GB 2760-86 provides for the spices allowed to use; used for the preparation of other food grade additives.
3. EDENOR C12-99 MY (LAURIC ACID) is widely used in the surfactant industry and can be, according to the classification of surfactants, divided into cationic, anionic, non-ionic and amphoteric type.
Some surfactants of the derivatives of dodecanoic acid and dodecanol are also antiseptics, such as dodecyl dimethyl benzyl ammonium chloride (geramine), dodecyl dimethyl benzyl ammonium bromide (bromo-geramine) and dodecyl dimethyl (2-phenoxyethyl) ammonium bromide (domiphen bromide).
The dodecyldimethyllammonium-2,4,5-trichlorophenolate in these derivatives can be used as citrus preservative.
Dodecanoic acid also has many applications in plastic additives, food additives, spices and pharmaceutical industries.
Given EDENOR C12-99 MY (LAURIC ACID)'s foaming properties, the derivatives of EDENOR C12-99 MY (LAURIC ACID) (h-dodecanoic acid) are widely used as a base in the manufacture of soaps, detergents, and lauryl alcohol.
EDENOR C12-99 MY (LAURIC ACID) is a common constituent of vegetable fats, especially coconut oil and laurel oil.
EDENOR C12-99 MY (LAURIC ACID) may have a synergistic effect in a formula to help fight against mircoorganisms.
EDENOR C12-99 MY (LAURIC ACID) is a mild irritant but not a sensitizer, and some sources cite Lauric acid as comedogenic.
EDENOR C12-99 MY (LAURIC ACID) is a fatty acid obtained from coconut oil and other veg- etable fats.
EDENOR C12-99 MY (LAURIC ACID) is practically insoluble in water but is soluble in alco- hol, chloroform, and ether.
EDENOR C12-99 MY (LAURIC ACID) functions as a lubricant, binder, and defoaming agent.
EDENOR C12-99 MY (LAURIC ACID), as a component of triglycerides, comprises about half of the fatty acid content in coconut oil, laurel oil, and in palm kernel oil (not to be confused with palm oil) , Otherwise it is relatively uncommon.
EDENOR C12-99 MY (LAURIC ACID) is also found in human breast milk ( 6.2 % of total fat), cow's milk (2.9%), and goat's milk (3.1 %).
EDENOR C12-99 MY (LAURIC ACID) is a fatty carboxylic acid isolated from vegetable and animal fats or oils.
For example, coconut oil and palm kernel oil both contain high proportions of EDENOR C12-99 MY (LAURIC ACID).
Isolation from natural fats and oils involves hydrolysis, separation of the fatty acids, hydrogenation to convert unsaturated fatty acids to saturated acids, and finally distillation of the specific fatty acid of interest.
EDENOR C12-99 MY (LAURIC ACID) is a carboxylic acid.
Carboxylic acids donate hydrogen ions if a base is present to accept them.
They react in this way with all bases, both organic (for example, the amines) and inorganic.
Their reactions with bases, called "neutralizations", are accompanied by the evolution of substantial amounts of heat.
Neutralization between an acid and a base produces water plus a salt.
Carboxylic acids in aqueous solution and liquid or molten carboxylic acids can react with active metals to form gaseous hydrogen and a metal salt.
Such reactions occur in principle for solid carboxylic acids as well, but are slow if the solid acid remains dry.
Even "insoluble" carboxylic acids may absorb enough water from the air and dissolve sufficiently in EDENOR C12-99 MY (LAURIC ACID) to corrode or dissolve iron, steel, and aluminum parts and containers.
Carboxylic acids, like other acids, react with cyanide salts to generate gaseous hydrogen cyanide.
The reaction is slower for dry, solid carboxylic acids.
Insoluble carboxylic acids react with solutions of cyanides to cause the release of gaseous hydrogen cyanide.
Flammable and/or toxic gases and heat are generated by the reaction of carboxylic acids with diazo compounds, dithiocarbamates, isocyanates, mercaptans, nitrides, and sulfides.
Carboxylic acids, especially in aqueous solution, also react with sulfites, nitrites, thiosulfates (to give H2S and SO3), dithionites (SO2), to generate flammable and/or toxic gases and heat.
Their reaction with carbonates and bicarbonates generates a harmless gas (carbon dioxide) but still heat.
Like other organic compounds, carboxylic acids can be oxidized by strong oxidizing agents and reduced by strong reducing agents.
These reactions generate heat.
A wide variety of products is possible.
Like other acids, carboxylic acids may initiate polymerization reactions; like other acids, they often catalyze (increase the rate of) chemical reactions.
EDENOR C12-99 MY (LAURIC ACID) can react with oxidizing materials.
