The acids separated from it are known by the names of margaric, stearic, and oleic acids.
A variety of oleic acid discovered in saponified castor oil.
Mix three teaspoonfuls of bile with one-half a teaspoonful of almond oil, to which some oleic acid is added.
Red oil (oleic acid, elaine) and stearic acid are the two fatty acids most generally bought for soap making.
It is also obtained when sebacic, stearic and oleic acids are oxidized with nitric acid.
The oleic acid, being liquid at ordinary temperature, together with some stearic and palmitic acid, is thus pressed out.
Fats are glycerides; that is, combinations of oleic, palmetic, and stearic acids.
The stearic acid thus obtained should be free from oleic acid.
The margaric and oleic acids seem to have the same neutralizing power, and the same atomic weight.
The fluid acid in its properties resembles the oleic acid discovered by Chevreul, and seems to dry easily.
