Oleyl alcohol Usage And Synthesis
Chemical PropertiesColourless or light yellow liquid.
Chemical PropertiesOleyl alcohol occurs as a pale yellow oily liquid that gives off acrid fumes when heated.
Usesoleyl alcohol is an emollient, solvent, viscosity-increasing agent, and carrier employed in a wide variety of cosmetic formulations including makeup, skin care, and hand and body preparations. oleyl alcohol is an unsaturated fatty alcohol found in fish oils and can also be produced synthetically. According to some sources, it is comedogenic and has a mild irritancy potential.
DefinitionChEBI: A long chain fatty alcohol that is octadecanol containing a double bond located at position 9 (the Z-geoisomer).
UsesChiefly in the manufacture of its sulfuric esters which are detergents and wetting agents, as an antifoam agent; metal cutting lubricant; in carbon paper, stencil paper, printing ink; as a plasticizer; for softening and lubricating textile fabrics; carrier for medicaments.
Production MethodsOleyl alcohol occurs naturally in fish oils. Synthetically, it can be prepared from butyl oleate by a Bouveault–Blanc reduction with sodium and butyl alcohol. An alternative method of manufacture is by the hydrogenation of triolein in the presence of zinc chromite.
Brand nameWitcohol 85 (Witco); Witcohol 90 (Witco).
Pharmaceutical ApplicationsOleyl alcohol is mainly used in topical pharmaceutical formulations and has been used in transdermal delivery formulations.It has been utilized in the development of biodegradable injectable thermoplastic oligomers,and in aerosol formulations of insulin and albuterol.
Therapeutically, it has been suggested that oleyl alcohol may exhibit antitumor properties via transmembrane permeation.
SafetyOleyl alcohol is mainly used in topical pharmaceutical formulations and is generally regarded as a nontoxic and nonirritant material at the levels employed as an excipient. However, contact dermatitis due to oleyl alcohol has been reported.
The results of acute oral toxicity and percutaneous studies in animals with products containing 8% oleyl alcohol indicate a very low toxicity. Formulations containing 8% or 20% oleyl alcohol administered by gastric intubation, at doses up to 10 g/kg bodyweight, caused no deaths and no toxic effects in rats.
storageThe bulk material should be stored in a well-closed container in a cool, dry, place.
Purification MethodsPurify it by fractional crystallisation at -40o from acetone, then distil it under vacuum. [Beilstein 2 IV 2204.]
Regulatory StatusIncluded in the FDA Inactive Ingredients Database (topical emulsions and ointments). Included in nonparenteral medicines licensed in the UK. Included in the Canadian List of Acceptable Non-medicinal Ingredients.
