Characteristics and Application :   
Lauric acid (systematically: dodecanoic acid), a saturated fatty acid, is a white, powdery solid with a faint odor of bay oil or soap.Lauric acid is the main acid in coconut oil and in palm kernel oil (not to be confused with palm oil), and is believed to have antimicrobial properties.It is also found in human milk (5.8% of total fat), cow's milk (2.2%), and goat's milk (4.5%).
Lauric acid is inexpensive, has a long shelf-life, and is non-toxic and safe to handle. Thus, it is often used in laboratory investigations of melting point depression. Lauric acid is a solid at room temperature but melts easily in boiling water, so liquid lauric acid can be treated with various solutes and used to determine their molecular masses.
This product is white solid insoluble in water, but soluble in petroleum ether, chloroform, ether and other organic solvents. Widely used in cosmetics oily or cleaning products, used as components of washing soap, the cleaning ability is strong.
