1684. HIROSE, S., NOBORI, H., AND NOGUSHI, M. Manufacture of Fatty Acids by the Oxidation of Paraffin. IV. Composition of Refined Fatty Acids. Jour. Soc. Chem. Ind. (Japan), vol. 45, 1942, pp. 541-544; Chem. Abs., vol. 43, 1949, p. 9029.
Refined fatty acids were prepared as follows: Oxidized paraffin was saponified and the unchanged paraffin was removed. The saponified product was treated at high temperature and the unsaponified matter was extracted with C6H6. The crude fatty acids were then distilled under reduced pressure. Properties of the distillates are tabulated.
