Capric acid Usage And Synthesis
DescriptionDecanoic acid (capric acid) is a saturated fatty acid with a 10-carbon backbone. It occurs naturally in coconut oils, palm kernel oil, and the milk of cow/goat.
Capric acid is most commonly used in the cosmetic and personal care, food/beverage, and pharmaceutical industries. It is also used as an intermediate in chemical syntheses. Furthermore, it is used in organic synthesis and in the manufacture of lubricants, greases, rubber, plastics, and dyes.
Chemical PropertiesWhite crystalline solid or needles. Unpleasant, rancid odor.
Chemical Propertieswhite crystals with an unpleasant odour
UsesDecanoic acid is used in manufacturing of esters for artificial fruit flavors and perfumes.
UsesIntermediates of Liquid Crystals
DefinitionChEBI: A C10, straight-chain saturated fatty acid.
Usesmanufacture of esters for artificial fruit flavors and perfumes; as an intermediate in other chemical syntheses.
General DescriptionWhite crystalline solid with a rancid odor. Melting point 31.5°C. Soluble in most organic solvents and in dilute nitric acid; non-toxic. Used to make esters for perfumes and fruit flavors and as an intermediate for food-grade additives.
Air & Water ReactionsInsoluble in water.
Reactivity ProfileCapric acid reacts exothermically to neutralize bases. Can react with active metals to form gaseous hydrogen and a metal salt. May absorb enough water from the air and dissolve sufficiently in Capric acid to corrode or dissolve iron, steel, and aluminum parts and containers. Reacts with cyanide salts or solutions of cyanide salts to generate gaseous hydrogen cyanide. Reacts exothermically with diazo compounds, dithiocarbamates, isocyanates, mercaptans, nitrides, and sulfides to generate flammable and/or toxic gases. Can react with sulfites, nitrites, thiosulfates (to give H2S and SO3), dithionites (SO2), to generate flammable and/or toxic gases and heat. Reacts with carbonates and bicarbonates to generate a harmless gas (carbon dioxide). Can be oxidized exothermically by strong oxidizing agents and reduced by strong reducing agents; a wide variety of products is possible. May initiate polymerization reactions or catalyze (increase the rate of) reactions among other materials.
Health HazardHarmful if swallowed or inhaled. Material is irritating to tissues of mucous membranes, and upper respiratory tract, eyes and skin.
Fire HazardCapric acid is combustible.
Safety ProfilePoison by intravenous route. Mutation data reported. A moderate skin irritant. When heated to decomposition it emits acrid smoke and irritating fumes.
Potential ExposureDeconoic acid (fatty acids, saturated, linear, number of C-atoms ≥8 and ≤12, with termi- nating carboxyl group) is a carboxylic acid microbiocide used in cleaning, sanitizing and disinfecting applications for food processors and dairy farmers.
First aidIf this chemical gets into the eyes, remove any contact lenses at once and irrigate immediately for at least 15 minutes, occasionally lifting upper and lower lids. Seek medical attention immediately. If this chemical contacts the skin, remove contaminated clothing and wash immediately with soap and water. Seek medical attention immediately. If this chemical has been inhaled, remove from exposure, begin rescue breathing (using universal precautions) if breathing has stopped, and CPR if heart action has stopped. Transfer promptly to a medical facility. When this chemical has been swallowed, get medical attention. If victim is conscious and able to swallow, have victim drink four to eight ounces of water. Do not induce vomiting.

Purification MethodsThe acid is best purified by conversion into its methyl ester, b 114.0o/15mm (using excess MeOH, in the presence of H2SO4). The H2SO4 and MeOH are removed, the ester is distilled in vacuo through a 3ft column packed with glass helices. The acid is then obtained from the ester by saponification and vacuum distillation.

IncompatibilitiesAn organic carboxylic acid. Keep away from oxidizers, sulfuric acid, caustics, ammonia, aliphatic amines, alkanolamines, isocyanates, alkylene oxides, and epichlorohydrin. Corrosive solution; attacks most common metals. React violently with strong oxidizers, bromine, 90% hydrogen peroxide, phosphorus trichloride, silver powders or dust. Mixture with some silver compounds forms explosive salts of silver oxalate. Incompatible with silver compounds.
Waste DisposalRecycle any unused portion of the material for its approved use or return it to the manu- facturer or supplier. Ultimate disposal of the chemical must consider: the material’s impact on air quality; potential migration in soil or water; effects on animal, aquatic, and plant life; and conformance with environmental and public health regulations .
