Abstract:

The fundamental diagram of the process for obtaining iso-acids is analogous to the diagram obtained for the production of synthetic fatty acids. Acids obtained from branched paraffins consist basically of acids not forming a complex with urea. During oxidation of branched paraffins, a significant quantity of products not soluble in petroleum ester are formed whose acid content is sharply lowered after heat treatment. During oxidation of the motoalkilat fraction acids are formed whose fractions analogous to the fractions of synthetic fatty acids have lower temperatures of solidification and higher acid numbers.
