What is butyl stearate used in?
It is often used as a lubricant (I believe!) A COLOURLESS OLEAGINOUS LIQUID,STABLE,PRACTICALLY ODOURLESS ESTER. MADE BY REACTION WITH STEARIC ACID WITH N- BUTANOL. MP : 20-23oC, DENSITY 0.855 -0.860 AT 20/20oC, SOLUBLE IN ALCOHOL & ETHER, INSOLUBLE IN WATER. IT IS A SPECIAL LUBRICANTS, INGREDIENTS FOR POLISHES, PLASTICIZER FOR LAMINATED FIBER PRODUCTS, CHLORINATED RUBBER & CABLE LACQUERS. USED IN CARBON PAPER & INKS; EMOLLIENT IN COSMETIC & PHARMACEUTICAL PRODUCTS; DAMP PROOFER FOR CONCRETE; USED IN LIPSTICKS; FLAVOURING & ALSO USED AS SURFACTANTS.

methyl stearate will react with triethanolamine to form an emulsifying agent. By itself, is not very goodin this respect
(CH 3 ) 3 COH tertiary butyl alcohol (also called TBA) originated as a by-product from making propylene oxide. TBA was an early blending agent for gasoline. It also worked wel…l with methanol as a co-solvent and disolves easily in both (gasoline and methanol) and has an octane rating of RON 106, MON 89 and (R+M)/2 = 98. On the downside, its hydrophilic properties (its affinity to attach to water molecules) made it an undeisirable blending additive.. from: Petroleum Refining in Nontechnical Language; 3rd edition, William L. Leffler
the reactants are methanol and butyric acid
The solid is used so that no water is added to the reaction, as water would stop the reaction.
Butyl is the group C 4 H 9 - bit it can also be an abbreviation for butyl rubber.
i don't have a clue!
ha ha your funny
what is difference beetwin sodium stearate and potassium stearate
Uses of sodium stearate: additive for some inks, paints, cosmetic products - soaps, ointments, etc., pharmaceuticals, foods, rubbers, etc.; also it is a binder or lubricant fo…r powders technology (pressing).
It's used as the liquid portion of some high-performance paints.
n-butyl alcohol and propionic anhydride are used.
There is a Butyl rubber adhesive specifically made for that. Available in Home Depot in 3 colours.
(CH 3 ) 3 C- is t-butyl group. CH 3 CH 2 CH 2 CH 2 - is n-butyl group.
