Asked in Chemistry
Wax is chemically mixture of?
Exact chemical mixtures or ratios of chemicals depend on the type of wax, whether they be animal waxes, vegetable waxes, mineral waxes, petroleum waxes, or synthetic waxes. Natural waxes such as animal waxes tend to have a greater variation in wax composition while synthetic waxes generally have less. Chemically, a wax is a type of lipid that may contain a wide variety of long-chain alkanes, esters, polyesters and hydroxy esters of long-chain primary alcohols and fatty acids. They are usually distinguished from fats by the lack of triglyceride esters of glycerin (propan-1,2,3-triol) and three fatty acids. In addition to the esters that contribute to the high melting point and hardness of carnauba wax, the epicuticular waxes of plants are mixtures of substituted long-chain aliphatic hydrocarbons, containing alkanes, fatty acids, primary and secondary alcohols, diols, ketones, aldehydes. Paraffin waxes are hydrocarbons, mixtures of alkanes usually in a homologous series of chain lengths.
