Elaidic acid

CAS No. 112-79-8

Formula: C18H34O2
Basic Info

Elaidic acid is the major trans fat found in hydrogenated vegetable oils and occurs in small amounts in caprine and bovine milk (very roughly 0.1% of the fatty acids) and some meats. It is the trans isomer of oleic acid. The name of the elaidinization reaction comes from elaidic acid.
Elaidic acid increases plasma CETP activity which lowers HDL cholesterol.

  • Toxicity to daphnia and other aquatic invertebrates: no data available
  • Toxicity to algae: no data available
  • Toxicity to microorganisms: no data available

12.2 Persistence and degradability

AEROBIC: A 47 and 52 theoretical %BOD for oleic acid (initial concn of 1,000 ppm) was measured over a period of 5 days in screening tests at 20°C using sewage inoculum(1). A biodegradation half-life of 0.66 days was measured for oleic acid at an initial concn of 100 ppm with an aerobic Warburg respirometer at 25°C using activated sludge inocula(2). In another screening study a first order rate constant was measured to be 0.12/hr for oleic acid (initial concn of 100 ppm) which corresponds to a biodegradation half-life of 0.2 days(3). Oleic acid at initial concns of 1, 10, 1, and 10 ppm exhibited 90, 24, 97, and 28 theoretical %BOD, respectively, over incubation periods of 5, 5, 10, and 10 days, respectively, in an aerobic screening study using sewage inoculum(4). A 68 theoretical %BOD (initial concn of 100 ppm) was measured over a period of 5 days in a screening test at 20°C using sewage inoculum(5). A 39 theoretical %BOD for oleic acid (initial concn not given) was measured over a period of 5 days in a screening test at 20°C using sewage inoculum(6). After a 16 day acclimation time, a 63.5 theoretical %BOD was measured for oleic acid (initial concn not given) over a period of 5 days in a screening test at 20°C using activated sludge inocula(7). A 57.2 theoretical %BOD was measured for oleic acid (initial concn of 500 ppm) over a period of 5 days in an aerobic screening test at 20°C using activated sludge inoculum(8).

12.3 Bioaccumulative potential

An estimated BCF of 10 was calculated in fish for oleic acid(SRC), using a log Kow of 7.64(1) and a regression-derived equation(2). According to a classification scheme(3), this BCF suggests the potential for bioconcentration in aquatic organisms is low(SRC).

12.4 Mobility in soil

The Koc of undissociated oleic acid is estimated as 340,000(SRC), using a log Kow of 7.64(1) and a regression-derived equation(2). According to a classification scheme(3), this estimated Koc value suggests that oleic acid is expected to be immobile in soil. The pKa of oleic acid is 5.02(4), indicating that this compound will exist almost entirely in anion form in the environment and anions generally do not adsorb more strongly to soils containing organic carbon and clay than their neutral counterparts(5).

12.5 Other adverse effects

no data available

13.Disposal considerations

13.1 Disposal methods

Product

The material can be disposed of by removal to a licensed chemical destruction plant or by controlled incineration with flue gas scrubbing. Do not contaminate water, foodstuffs, feed or seed by storage or disposal. Do not discharge to sewer systems.
