The form is a waxy white solid with a chemical formula of CH3(CH2)16CO2H and a molar mass of 284.48 g/mol. This product is derived from the hydrogenation of unsaturated vegetable oils. Commercial stearic acid may come from a mix of stearic acid, palmitic acid, and oleic acid. The market offers different grades of this product, such as rubber grade, candle grade, double pressed quality, and triple pressed grade. These products are classified based on iodine number, saponification value, acid number, and fatty acid composition.
