CAS# 142-62-1; Formula: Cn-1H2n-1COOH;
C-698 is primarily composed of Caproic Acid (C6, 99% min);
‘n’ in the structural diagram above refers to the different car-
bon chain lengths present, from C6 up to C12. It is a water
white to yellow liquid under ambient conditions with a sharp,
musty, rancid odor.
(all properties @ 23.9°C (75°F), 760mmHg unless stated)
Negligibly soluble in water, but soluble in alcohol and ether
under ambient conditions.
End-use applications for C-698 include synthetic lubricants
base stock, refrigeration lubricants, medium chain triglycerides,
fire resistant hydraulic fluids, tailored fats, alkyl chlorides for
agricultural products, phosphate ore floatation, amides for
agricultural products, production of plasticizer alcohols, corro-
sion inhibitors for antifreeze, flavour compounds, perfumes,
antiseptics, and fungicides.
GENERAL INFORMATION cont…
All of our fatty alcohol brands are produced in P&G Chemi-
cals’ global fatty alcohol network. They are manufactured
entirely from naturally occurring vegetable oils.
• No preservatives or additives are present.
• No gluten/wheat, corn, dairy, egg, fish/shellfish, sulfites,
yeast, starch, MSG, peanut, other nut, rice, sugar, or
sodium potential allergens are present.
• Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE) and Transmis-
sible Spongiform Encephalopathy (TSE) are not a con-
cern with C-698, Caproic Acid.
• At the low vacuum (12-18 mmHg) and high tempera-
ture (up to 550 degF) at which our process operates, we
do not believe that microbiological activities exist.
Shelf life is affected by how a product is stored. P&G
Chemicals has conducted extensive stability study tests for
our NF Fatty Alcohols. For this reason, P&G Chemicals only
provides shelf life for NF Alcohols for which a stability study
has been conducted. For all
