Palmitic acid is also known as hexadecanoic acid in the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistrynomenclature. The Palmitic acid is one of the most common saturated fatty acid found in plants, animals and microorganisms. The chemical formula for Palmitic acid is CH3(CH2)14COOH. As the name suggests, the Palmitic acid is the major component of oil found in meats, dairy products like cheese, butter, coconut oil and Palm Oil. The salts and esters of Palmitic acid are called Palmitate. The Palmitic acid is used in production of various esters, metallic soaps, fatty amines, fatty alcohols, oxazolines for paint binder, surfactants in cosmetics, liquid and transparent soaps and use in agricultural chemicals and food etc. The largest application of Palmitic Acid is used in making soaps and detergents.
