Preparation of methyl palmitate

 

Methyl hexadecanate is a raw material for surfactants and other fine chemical products, and is an excellent intermediate for the manufacture of emulsifiers, wetting agents, stabilizers, rust inhibitors and plasticizers. It can also be used in inter-biotin pheromones, biodiesel, cosmetic raw materials and preparation of plant acaricides.

At present, there are two main methods for obtaining methyl palmitate. One is to prepare a mixture of fatty acid methyl esters by transesterification of palm oil and methanol under basic catalysis conditions for biodiesel; the other is to use concentrated sulfuric acid as a catalyst. Methyl palmitate is prepared by direct dehydration and esterification of palmitic acid with methanol.

Our company-NANJING BENZE FINE CHEMICAL CO.LTD already has a series of production capacity of fatty acid ester products, which are exported to overseas markets for various fields. Our company website has detailed instructions for your reference.
