Lanolin Tranesterification With Trimethylolpropane/ Acidic Conditions
Brief video ( one minute) of the transesterification reaction. I am using 370 g/mole for the lanolin and am reacting equi-molar amounts of reactants. 150-165 deg C 2-3 hrs. I am hoping the product will have released fatty alcohols which are known to increase emulsifying properties. I am working on novel paint formulations with watercolor/gouache with synthetic petrolatum.
