Application of Ethylene Glycol Monostearate

0.95 mol of stearic acid, 1 mol of ethylene glycol and catalytic amount of sulfuric acid are dropped into the reactor. Heat to reflux, and continuously remove the generated water through the water separator. After reacting for 3 to 4 hours, take a sample to measure the acid value. When the acid value drops below 6mgKOH/g, the esterification reaction is completed, and then the feed liquid is poured into the neutralization tank. Neutralize to an acid value of 4mgKOH/g. Let go of the lye, decolorize with hydrogen peroxide, cool and crystallize, dry after centrifugal filtration, and pack to get the finished product.
