Chemical Properties:

  1. 1.white chips, crystals or powder
  2. Palmitic acid occurs as white crystalline scales with a slight characteristic odor and taste.
  3. Palmitic acid is virtually odorless. It is also reported as having a slight characteristic odor and taste. It is a mixture of solid organic acids obtained from fats consisting chiefly of palmitic acid (C16H35O2) with varying amounts of stearic acid (C16H36O2).


  1. Palmitic Acid is a fatty acid which is a mixture of solid organic acids from fats consisting principally of palmitic acid with varying amounts of stearic acid. it functions as a lubricant, binder, and defoaming agent.
  2. palmitic acid is one of the skin’s major fatty acids produced by the sebaceous glands. In cosmetic preparations, it is used as a formula texturizer. This acid is naturally occurring in allspice, anise, calamus oil, cascarilla bark, celery seed, coffee, tea, and many animal fats and plant oils. It is obtained from palm oil, Japan wax, or Chinese vegetable tallow.
  3. Palmitic Acid is a common fatty acid found in plants and animals. The body converts excess carbohydrates into Palmitic Acid, thus Palmitic Acid is the first fatty acid produced during fatty acid synt hesis as well as a precursor for longer fatty acids.
  4. Palmitic acid is mainly used to produce soaps, cosmetics, and release agents. These applications utilize sodium palmitate, which is commonly obtained by saponification of palm oil. To this end, palm oil, rendered from the coconut palm nut, is treated with sodium hydroxide (in the form of caustic soda or lye), which causes hydrolysis of the ester groups. This procedure affords glycerol and sodium palmitate.
    Because it is inexpensive and adds texture to processed foods (convenience food), palmitic acid and its sodium salt find wide use including foodstuffs. Sodium palmitate is permitted as a natural additive in organic products.
    Hydrogenation of palmitic acid yields cetyl alcohol, which is used to produce detergents and cosmetics.
    Recently, a long-acting antipsychotic medication, paliperidone palmitate (marketed as INVEGA Sustenna), used in the treatment of schizophrenia, has been synthesized using the oily palmitate ester as a long-acting release carrier medium when injected intramuscularly. The underlying method of drug delivery is similar to that used with decanoic acid to deliver long-acting depot medication, in particular, neuroleptics such as haloperidol decanoate.
  5. Mainly used as a surface active agent. When used as a non-ionic type, it can be used for polyoxyethylene sorbitan monopalmitate and sorbitan monopalmitate. The former is made into lipophilic emulsifier and used in all cosmetics and Medicine, the latter can be used as emulsifier for cosmetics, medicine, food, dispersant for pigment ink, and also as defoamer; when used as anionic, it is made into sodium palmitate and used as raw material for fatty acid soap, plastic emulsifier Etc.; zinc palmitate is used as a stabilizer for cosmetics and plastics; in addition to being used as a surfactant, Chemicalbook is also used as a raw material for isopropyl palmitate, methyl ester, butyl ester, amine compounds, chlorides, etc.; among them, palmitic acid Isopropyl ester is the oil phase raw material of cosmetics. It can be used to make lipsticks, various creams, hair oils, hair creams, etc.; others such as methyl palmitate can be used as lubricating oil additives and surfactant raw materials; PVC slip agent, etc. ; Raw materials for candles, soaps, grease, synthetic detergents, softeners, etc.; used as a spice, which is an edible spice allowed by my country’s GB2760-1996 regulations; also used as a food defoamer.
