 1682.    ---------------.  [KAWAI, S. AND MORITA, K.]  Manufacture of Fatty Acids by the Oxidation of Paraffin.  II.  Jour. Soc. Chem. Ind. (Japan), vol. 44, 1941, pp. 702-704; Chem. Abs., vol. 43, 1949, p. 9029.

       Oxidation product of Fushun oil-shale paraffin treated 3 hours with concentrated NaOH solution in an autoclave at 260-310 under 60-120 atm. yielded crude fatty acids of very low ester value and low OH value.  These values decreased with increasing reaction temperature and pressure.
