Oleic acid is a liquid at room temperature. Its molarity, calculated from its density and molecular weight (0.89 g/mL at 25 degrees C and 282.46 g/mol, respectively) is approximately 3.15 mol/L.
Per the chemicals encyclopedia published by the Royal Society of Chemistry, 12th ed., Entry# 6965, oleic acid is soluble in alcohol, benzene, chloroform, ether, fixed and volatile oils, but is practically insoluble in water.
Sigma's oleic acid is a clear, colorless to very faint yellow viscous liquid. It is sensitive to air and light. When it becomes oxidized, it aquires a much darker yellow to brown color.
