 1690.    ---------------.  [KAWAI, S. AND NOBORI, H.]  Manufacture of Fatty Acids by the Oxidation of Paraffin.  X.  Oxidation of the Mixture of Paraffins and Fatty Acids.  Jour. Soc. Chem. Ind. (Japan), vol. 46, 1943, pp. 167-170; Chem. Abs., vol. 43, 1949, p. 9029.

        Shale oil, melting 45.5 and I value 11.1 from Bujun, Manchuria, was mixed with various fatty acids, such as caprylic or stearic acid, and air was passed at 110. Comparatively small amounts of the acids were oxidized.  If oxidation was carried out at 130, lauric acid and stearic acid were oxidized.
