Oleyl alcohol

Oleyl alcohol is a long-chain aliphatic alcohol that occurs naturally in fish oils. It is prepared by synthetic reduction of plant-derived oleic acid.

Oleyl alcohol is used in largescale applications as the softening and lubrication of textile fabrics, and the production of carbon paper, stencil paper, and printing ink. Oleyl alcohol is also utilized as an antifoam agent and cutting lubricant. It also is a precursor for the preparation of its sulfuric ester derivatives, which are used in detergents and wetting agents. Oleyl alcohol has also been incorporated into various formulations for drug delivery.
