Description

Applications
Arachidic acid is used in the manufacture of pharmaceuticals, soaps, cosmetics, and food packaging because of its surfactant-like properties. Arachidic acid is a saturated fatty acid with a 20 carbon chain. Diets rich in saturated fats like arachidic acid are associated with increased levels of serum low density lipoproteins.

Solubility
Soluble in chloroform, ether, ethanol, and DMF. Insoluble in water.

Notes
Keep container tightly closed. Store away from oxidizing agents.
