Descripción general

Oleic acid (OA) is a fatty acid. Its quantitative removal from the mixtures of triglyceride and partial glycerides has been reported. OA is widely used as surfactant for the stabilization of magnetic nanoparticles. Monodisperse magnetite nanoparticles (7 and 19nm) coated with OA have been prepared.


Oleic acid may be used in the preparation of 10-hydroxyoctadecanoic acid and methyl ester of the 10-hydroxyoctadecanoic acid.

  1. Which document(s) contains shelf-life or expiration date information for a given product?

    If available for a given product, the recommended re-test date or the expiration date can be found on the Certificate of Analysis.

  2. How do I get lot-specific information or a Certificate of Analysis?

    The lot specific COA document can be found by entering the lot number above under the "Documents" section.

  3. You describe Product O1008, Oleic acid, as a liquid in your Specification Sheet, but you do not give its concentration.

    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.

  4. In what solvents can Product O1008, Oleic acid, be dissolved or diluted?

    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.

  5. How can one determine whether Product O1008, Oleic acid, has undergone oxidation?

    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.
