Isopropyl myristate Chemical Properties,Uses,Production

Chemical Properties

It is a colorless and odorless liquid, and miscible with vegetable oil. It is not easy to be either hydrolyzed or become rancid. The refractive index nD20 is 1.435~1.438, and the relative density (20°C) is 0.85~0.86.

Content Analysis

Weight 1.5 g sample. Then it is determined by the method ester assay (OT-18). The equivalent factor (e) in the calculation is 135.2. Or it is determined by a non-polar column method of gas chromatography (GT-10-4).


Production Method

It is a product of esterification of myristic acid derived from re-steamed coconut coil with isopropyl alcohol.
(1)  200 kg myristic acid and 450 kg isopropyl alcohol were added into the reaction vessel in turn. After mixing, 360 kg sulfuric acid (98%) was added. The reaction mixture was heated to reflux for 10 hours. Isopropyl alcohol was then recovered, washed with ice water, and neutralized with Na2CO3 aqueous solution (10%). Under normal pressure, isopropyl alcohol and water were distilled. While under reduced pressure, isopropyl myristate was distilled (185°C/1.0kPa~195°C/2.7kPa).
(2) 90 kg isopropyl alcohol was added into the reaction vessel and then sulfuric acid as catalyst, with 5% of the total amount, was added. During mixing, 228 kg myristic acid was added slowly. The mixture was heated to reflux and water was continuously separated. Until no water was separated, the reaction temperature was reduced and probe was obtained to measure the acid value. When the acid value reached 1.5 mg KOH/g, the reaction was completed. Alkali was then added for neutralization. After the removal of water under reduced pressure, the pressure was further reduced for dealcoholization until the acid value was 0.05~1.0 mg KOH/g. The final product is then isopropyl myristate.


ADI is not regulated (FAO/WHO, 2001).

Chemical Properties

colourless liquid of low viscosity


In cosmetic and topical medicinal Preparations where good absorption through the skin is desired. A jellied isopropyl myristate was marketed as Estergel (Merck & Co.) .
