2968.     ---------------.  [RUHRCHEMIE, A.-G.]  [Synthetic Production of Wax Acids and Emulsifiers and Their Utilization.]  FIAT Reel L-5, Feb. 16, 1943, frames 55-95; PB 70,159; TOM Reel 299.

        Report presents a survey on the wax acids and emulsifiers from products of the Fischer-Tropsch gasoline synthesis and on their utilization.  The preparation of fully synthetic wax acids from synthetic paraffins has been achieved.  Special consideration is given to the OP4, OP5, and OP32 acids produced by Ruhrchemie.  From these wax acids the 3 emulsifiers FP 2035, 1025, and 1325 were developed.  These serve to produce pastelike and liquid emulsions, respectively.  The possibilities for the technical utilization of wax acids are commented on; they serve for instance for the production of high-melting lubricating greases and oils and as emulsifiers for shoe polish, etc.  Wax acids and emulsifiers also can be utilized in the leather industries.
