Sebacic Acid Production Cost Analysis 2021

Sebacic acid is a dicarboxylic acid, which occurs naturally. In appearance, it is a white flake or powdered solid. Sebacic acid is known as a derivative of castor oil. In the commercial setting, this acid and its homologues like the azelaic acid are used as a monomer for nylon 6,10, plasticisers, lubricants, hydraulic fluids, cosmetics, candles, etc. Sebacic acid is manufactured from castor oil by the cleavage of ricinoleic acid, which is derived from castor oil. Octanol is a byproduct. It can also be derived from decalin via the tertiary hydroperoxide that gives cyclodecanone, a precursor to sebacic acid.

Sebacic acid is a saturated, straight-chain dicarboxylic acid with ten carbon atoms. It is used in the synthesis of polyamide and alkyd resins. It is used as an intermediate for aromatics, antiseptics, and painting materials as well. Sebacic acid is also known as an example of alpha and omega-dicarboxylic acid. It plays a role as a human metabolite and a plant metabolite. It is the conjugate acid of a sebacate (2-) and a sebacate. It derives from a hydride of a decane.
