Lipids play a pivotal role in fulfilling various functions in life. As a reliable chemical supplier in the industry and research circle, Alfa Chemistry has established a comprehensive product line, providing a large collection of lipids and fatty acids. On December 14, 2021, the management of this company announces the launch of a sub-product-line of fatty acids and ester derivatives, which covers waxes, triacylglycerides, phospholipids, sphingolipids and glycolipids.

After this decision is implemented, scientists and researchers worldwide will have easier access to find the fatty acids and ester derivatives they need on the website of Alfa Chemistry.

“A fatty acid is a carboxylic acid with an aliphatic chain, which is either saturated or unsaturated. Fatty acid esters (FAEs) are a type of ester that result from the combination of a fatty acid with an alcohol. Both their derivatives have a wide range of commercial applications,” says one of the senior scientists from Alfa Chemistry.

Fatty acids and ester derivatives are frequently used in the production of numerous food products as well as in soaps, detergents, and cosmetics. They are added to some skin-care products to help maintain healthy skin appearance and function. Omega-3 fatty acids, another fatty acids have been sold as popular dietary supplements. Moreover, these derivatives can also be used in industrial applications such as lubricants, pharmaceutical and plastics.

At Alfa Chemistry, a rich collection of fatty acetates and ester derivatives are available for selection to serve different research purposes. Some of them are listed below:

cis-12,13-Epoxy-9(Z),15(Z)-octadecadienoic acid (CAS 100019-37-2), 9(R)-hydroxy-10(E),12(Z)-octadecadienoic acid (CAS 10075-11-3), threo-9, 10-Dihydroxyoctadecanoic acid (CAS 10067-09-1), 15-oxo-11(Z),13(E)-eicosadienoic acid (CAS 105835-44-7), Heptanedioic acid (CAS 111-16-0), Decanedioic acid (CAS 111-20-6), Methyl 3,7,11,15-Tetramethylhexadecanoate (CAS 1118-77-0), 8(S)-hydroxy-5(Z),9(E),11(Z),14(Z),17(Z)-eicosapentaenoic acid (CAS 118492-81-2), Jasmonic acid-isoleucine conju gate (CAS 120330-93-0), 25-Methylhexacosanoic acid (CAS 128156-70-7), Methyl 2-Hydroxyhexadecanoate (CAS 16742-51-1), and many more.
