SODIUM OLEATE Chemical Properties,Uses,Production
Chemical Properties
White powder; slight tallowlike odor. Soluble in water with partial decom- position; soluble in alcohol. Combustible.
Chemical Properties
Sodium oleate, white solid, soluble, froth or foam upon shaking the H2O solution (soap), formed by reaction of NaOH and oleic acid (in alcoholic solution) and evaporating. Used as a source of oleate.
Sodium Oleate is the sodium salt of oleic acid. it functions as a binder, emulsifier, and anticaking agent.
preparation of Turkey red oil, soft soap and other oleates; in polishing Compounds; waterproofing textiles, oiling wool; manufacture of driers; thickening lubricating oils. Pharmaceutic aid (solvent). The barium salt in rodent extermination.
sodium oleate is a mild cleansing and foaming agent generally used in soaps. It is derived from natural fats and oils.
General Description
Light tan solid with a slight tallow-like odor. Sinks and mixes slowly with water.
Air & Water Reactions
Water soluble. Gives basic aqueous solution.
Reactivity Profile
Salts, basic, such as SODIUM OLEATE, are generally soluble in water. The resulting solutions contain moderate concentrations of hydroxide ions and have pH’s greater than 7.0. They react as bases to neutralize acids. These neutralizations generate heat, but less or far less than is generated by neutralization of the bases in reactivity group 10 (Bases) and the neutralization of amines. They usually do not react as either oxidizing agents or reducing agents but such behavior is not impossible.
Health Hazard
Inhalation of dust causes irritation of nose and throat, coughing, and sneezing. Ingestion causes mild irritation of mouth. Contact with eyes causes irritation.
Safety Profile
Poison by intravenous route. Migrates to food from packaging materials. Combustible when exposed to heat or flame. When heated to decomposition it emits toxic fumes of Na2O
Purification Methods
It crystallises from EtOH and is dried in an oven at 100o. [Beilstein 2 H 465, 2 I 201, 2 II 434, 2 III 1405, 2 IV 1645.]
