General description

10-Hydroxydecanoic acid (10-HDA) is a saturated fatty acid of hydroxy-trans-2-decenoic acid (10H2DA). Its molecule has two functional groups (-OH and -COOH). It has been reported to prevent the lipopolysaccharide-induced NO production in murine macrophages. 10-HDA has been extracted from royal jelly obtained from honeybees (Apis mellifera) and exhibits estrogenic action. Its polymerization with the polyethylene glycol-modified lipase in a transparent benzene solution has been reported to proceed by the formation of ester linkage.


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.
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

Toll-like receptors (TLRs) play a critical role in innate immunity by recognizing pathogen-associated molecular patterns. Various environmental materials including lipids may affect TLR signaling and modulate innate immune responses.
