Thanks for the feedback!
methyl stearate will react with triethanolamine to form an emulsifying agent. By itself, is not very goodin this respect
(CH3)3COH tertiary butyl alcohol (also called TBA) originated as a by-product from making propylene oxide. TBA was an early blending agent for gasoline. It also worked w…ell with methanol as a co-solvent and disolves easily in both (gasoline and methanol) and has an octane rating of RON 106, MON 89 and (R+M)/2 = 98. On the downside, its hydrophilic properties (its affinity to attach to water molecules) made it an undeisirable blending additive. *from: Petroleum Refining in Nontechnical Language; 3rd edition, William L.

Methyl stearate is a chemical often used as an emulsifying agent commonly found in cosmetics and drugs. It is classified as an ester from methyl alcohol and stearic acid.
the reactants are methanol and butyric acid
Butyl is the group C4H9- bit it can also be an abbreviation for butyl rubber.
i don't have a clue!
ha ha your funny
what is difference beetwin sodium stearate and potassium stearate
Uses of sodium stearate: additive for some inks, paints, cosmetic products - soaps, ointments, etc., pharmaceuticals, foods, rubbers, etc.; also it is a binder or lubricant fo…r powders technology (pressing).
Are you sure this is the right spelling?
n-butyl alcohol and propionic anhydride are used.
(CH3)3C- is t-butyl group. CH3CH2CH2CH2- is n-butyl group.
