Substance Information

Alcohols, C6-24, distn. residues

The complex residue resulting from the vacuum distillation of C6-24 fatty alcohols which is derived from hydrogenation of C6-24 fatty acids methyl esters. It consists predominantly of satd. fatty alcohols having carbon numbers greater than C18, dimerization products, and long chain esters having carbon numbers greater than C32 and boils at > 250°C (482°F) at 10 torr.
