Octanoic acid Usage And Synthesis
DescriptionKnown by the systematic name octanoic acid, Caprylic Acid is a type of beneficial saturated medium-chain fatty acid with antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal and anti-inflammatory properties, whose compounds are found naturally in the breast milk of various mammals, coconut oil and palm kernel oil. It is an oily liquid with a slightly unpleasant rancid-like smell and taste that is minimally soluble in water.
It is widely applied in various fields, one of which is used as an antimicrobial pesticide, in which it serves as a food contact surface sanitizer in commercial food handling establishments on dairy equipment, food processing equipment, breweries, wineries, and beverage processing plants. Besides, Caprylic acid is used commercially in the manufacture of esters used in perfumery and in the production of dyes. It is also  used as an algaecide, bactericide, and fungicide in nurseries, greenhouses, garden centers, and interiorscapes on ornamentals. Some studies have shown that Caprylic acid is effective to excess calorie burning taken as a dietary supplement, resulting in weigh loss.
Chemical PropertiesCaprylic acid, CH3(CH2)6COOH, also known as hexylacetic acid,n-octanoic acid, octylie acid, and octic acid, is a colorless oily liquid fatty acid with a melting point of 16 DC. It is found in butter, coconut oil, and other fats. It is used in manufacturing drugs and dyes.
UsesIntermediates of Liquid Crystals
UsesOctanoic acid is a flavoring agent considered to be a short or medium chain fatty acid. It occurs normally in various foods and is commercially prepared by oxidation of n-octanol or by fermentation and fractional distillation of the volatile fatty acids present. It is used in maximum levels, as served, of 0.13% for baked goods; 0.04% for cheeses; 0.005% for fats and oils, frozen dairy desserts, gelatins and puddings, meat products, and soft candy; 0.016% for snack foods; and 0.001% or less for all other food categories. It is also termed octanoic acid.
DefinitionChEBI: A straight-chain saturated fatty acid that is heptane in which one of the hydrogens of a terminal methyl group has been replaced by a carboxy group. Octanoic acid is also known as caprylic acid.
UsesAn intermediate in manufacture of esters used in perfumery; in manufacture of dyes, etc.
General DescriptionA colorless to light yellow liquid with a mild odor. Burns, but may be difficult to ignite. Corrosive to metals and tissue.
Safety ProfileModerately toxic by intravenous route. Mildly toxic by ingestion. Mutation data reported. A skin irritant. Yields irritating vapors that can cause coughmg. When heated to decomposition it emits acrid smoke and irritating fumes.
