PAMOLYN™ 380 Conjugated Linoleic Acid

Producer: 
Eastman
Brand: 
PAMOLYN
Pamolyn™ 380 conjugated linoleic acid is produced synthetically by an Eastman process that isomerizes 9, 12-linoleic acid to the 9, 11-conjugated form, and controls production of the latter to a uniform ratio of cis-trans to trans-trans isomers. It is a pale, low odor, oily liquid that has excellent heat color stability and an exceptionally low titer. Designed mainly for use in the production of polyfunctional chemical intermediates by Diels-Alder chemistry, Pamolyn™ 380 linoleic acid typically contains 69% conjugated unsaturation. The remaining portion is primarily oleic and nonconjugated linoleic acid.

Storage & Handling

+
Storage

Do not store in carbon steel containers since fatty acids will react and discolor. Inside storage and "first in first out" inventory control is recommended. Storage at temperatures above 30°C should be avoided. Fatty acids are susceptible to gradual oxidation, some more so than others. This could result in darkening and/or it could have an adverse effect on the solubility of the product in organic solvents or on its compatibility with polymers. Accordingly, it is recommended that strict control of inventory be observed at all times, taking care that the oldest material is used first. Material will remain within product specification limits for a period of at least 540 days from date of manufacture, provided recommended storage conditions are observed. However, as neither the processing conditions for the product, nor the end use applications for which it is used can be anticipated and extreme conditions can affect the product quality, it is recommended that the material be tested upon receipt.
