 1693.    KAWAI, S.  Manufacture of Fatty Acids by the Oxidation of Paraffin.  XX.  Example of an Oxidation Experiment.  Jour. Soc. Chem. Ind. (Japan), vol. 46, 1943, pp. 762-764; Chem. Abs., vol. 43, 1949, p. 9030.

       Distillate, b3 200-250, from shale-oil paraffin was oxidized 22.5 hr. by 4 l./min. of air/800 gm. paraffin at 110-120 to yield 22.2% crude fatty acids.  Of the crude fatty acids, 8% are insoluble in petroleum ether.  Of the fatty acids soluble in petroleum ether, 89% are soluble in 85% alcohol.  The distillation test on the fatty acids soluble in alcohol was carried out, and the properties of the distillates were examined.
