10-Hydroxydecanoic acid is suitable for use in a study on Novozym 435-catalyzed condensation polymerization of cis-9,10-epoxy-18-hydroxyoctadecanoic acid and its comparison with corresponding polymerization of 10-hydroxydecanoic acid.1

Reactant involved in:
• Synthesis of copolymers of acrylamide and sodium acryloyloxydecanoate
• Macrolactonization for preparation of Sansalvamide A
• Studies of chain length selectivity for cutinase catalyzed polycondensation reactions
• Ruthenium-catalyzed esterification followed by macrocyclization
• Synthesis of anhydrides and esters

General description

10-Hydroxydecanoic acid is a saturated fatty acid and its effect on lipopolysachharide-induced cytokines/chemokines and NO production in murine macrophages has been investigated.2 10-Hydroxydecanoic acid was isolated from royal jelly and was also reported to exhibit the estrogenic activity which was evaluated by a ligand-binding assay for the estrogen receptor (ER) β.3 Polymerization of 10-hydroxydecanoic acid by ester bond formation with the polyethylene glycol-modified lipase in a transparent benzene solution has been reported.4
