9-Decanoic Acid Methyl Ester Research Reports

9-Decanoic Acid Methyl Ester Research Reports

9-decanoic acid methyl ester refers to a medium-chain saturated fatty acid. Over the period of past few years, there is significant growth in demand for this chemical owing to its increased application in numerous industries across the globe. It is widely used in supplements, flavorings, soaps, dietetics, and cosmetics. Generally, palm oil and coconut oil are used as one of the important raw materials in the production of 9-decanoic acid methyl ester and other oleochemicals.

Philippines is considered one of the biggest coconut oil producers in the world. This aside, Malaysia and Indonesia jointly account for approximately 85% of the palm oil production in the globe. As 9-decanoic acid methyl ester is naturally derived, it helps in increasing the impetus of various products from the fragrances, flavors, and pharmaceuticals industry. At present, huge number of oleochemicals are manufactured with the help of naturally derived raw materials. Key reason for this increased use is they are renewable feedstock and environment-friendly in nature.

For the conversion of palm kernel oil, coconut oil, and palm oil into methyl esters and glycerin, the process of trans-esterification is employed. In the detergent and soap manufacturing sector, natural glycerides are trans-esterified with methanol for the formation of methyl esters. In the trans-esterification process, triglyceride such as oil or fat shows reaction with alcohol, and methyl esters and glycerol are formed. These methyl esters are further processed and fractioned into various methyl esters.

Different companies engaged in the production of 9-decanoic acid methyl ester are focused on the incorporation of new techniques in their production processes. Thus, they are increasing investments toward research and development activities. Over the period of past few years, there is considerable growth in adoption of green chemicals across the globe. This scenario is likely to boost demand avenues for companies from the production of 9-decanoic acid methyl ester.
