Common NameOleyl alcohol
DescriptionOleyl alcohol is found in fishes. Oleyl alcohol occurs in fish oils. Emulsion stabiliser, antifoam agent, detergent and release agent for food applications It is a non-ionic, unsaturated fatty alcohol. Oleyl alcohol, octadecenol, or cis-9-octadecen-1-ol, is a fatty alcohol coming from inedible beef fat. It is also found in fish oil. Its chemical formula is C18H36O or CH3(CH2)7-CH=CH-(CH2)8OH. Oleyl alcohol belongs to the family of Fatty Alcohols. These are aliphatic alcohols consisting of a chain of 8 to 22 carbon atoms (Do not have to bear a carboxylic acid group)[1]. (Reference: [1] Fatty Alcohols: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fatty_alcohol).
