3281.     STINZENDÖRFER, H.  [Determination of the Constitution of the Fatty Acids Produced in the Fischer-Tropsch Synthesis.]  Tech. Mitt. Krupp. Forschungsber, vol. 5, 1942, pp. 34-36; Chem. Zentralb., 1942, I, p. 2955; Chem. Abs., vol. 37, 1943, p. 3623.

        Fatty acids contained in the remaining gases of a large-scale plant operating according to the Fischer-Tropsch process were isolated and separated by vacuum distillation into individual fractions.  The mixture of fatty acids consisted essentially of saturated monobasic fatty acids, about the series of valeric to capric acids.  Only very small amounts of unsaturated fat acids occurred.
