 Acme Synthetic Chemicals is the Manufacturer, Supplier and also the Exporter of Erucic Acid.

 Erucic Acid is classified under CAS No.112-86-7.

 Erucic Acid is also known as cis-13-docosenoic acid.

 Erucic Acid is a monounsaturated omega-9 fatty acid. 

 Erucic Acid is known as monounsaturated because it has only one double-bonded carbon atom in its fatty acid chain. The term  omega-9 refers to a group of fatty acid.     

 Erucic Acid has many of the same uses as mineral oils, but it is more readily biodegradable than some.

 Erucic Acid has limited ability to polymerize and dry for use in oil paints. Like other fatty acids, it can be converted  into surfactants or lubricants, and can be used as a precursor to bio-diesel fuel, a vegetable-based fuel source.

 Erucic Acid is also used as an ingredient in appetite suppressants.

 Erucic Acid is not soluble in water, but does dissolve in methanol and ethanol.

 Erucic Acid is used to make a wide range of chemicals. Products produced using Erucic Acid include lubricants, cosmetics, nylon,  and polyester, heat transfer fluids, surfactants, slip agents, emollients, cosmetics and coatings.

 Erucic Acid is used as an intermediate to make chemicals such as triglycerides, erucamides, amines,behenic acid, behenyl  alcohol, erucyl alcohol, wide range of erucic acid metallic salts and esters, brassylic acid and pelargonic acid.
