General description

Oleic acid is a monounsaturated fatty acid mainly found in high quantity in olive oil, peanut oil, sunflower oil and canola oil.
We are committed to bringing you Greener Alternative Products, which adhere to one of the four categories of Greener Alternatives . This product is a Biobased products, showing key improvements in Green Chemistry Principles “Less Hazardous Chemical Syntheses” and “Use of Renewable Feedstock”.

Application


  • Orientation-Dependent Photoconductivity of Quasi-2D Nanocrystal Self-Assemblies.: Investigating the photoconductivity properties of quasi-2D nanocrystals, this research demonstrates the influence of oleic acid in manipulating the orientation and enhancing the electronic properties of these nanomaterials (Ibrahem et al., 2024).

  • Sequential gentle hydration increases encapsulation in model protocells.: Research in this article shows how oleic acid can be used to improve the encapsulation efficiency in model protocells, offering insights into the origins of cellular life (Gehlbach et al., 2024).
