Cetyl Alcohol

Cetyl Alcohol, chemically known as hexadecan-1-ol or palmityl alcohol, is a long-chain fatty alcohol with 16 carbon atoms, represented by the chemical formula CH3(CH2)15OH. At room temperature, cetyl alcohol appears as a waxy white solid or flakes. The name "cetyl" originates from the Latin word "cetus" and Ancient Greek "κῆτος" (kētos), both meaning "whale" or "large fish," reflecting its historical extraction from whale oil. Discovered in 1817 by French chemist Michel Chevreul, cetyl alcohol was initially produced by heating spermaceti, a waxy substance obtained from sperm whale oil, with caustic potash (potassium hydroxide), resulting in the formation of cetyl alcohol flakes upon cooling. Modern production primarily involves the chemical reduction of ethyl palmitate.
