Fatty alcohols are commonly used in the production of detergents and surfactants. They are also components of foods; cosmetics and as industrial solvents.
The 2008 edition originated from a multi-year review of the existence; behaviour; and use of fatty alcohols to notify the registration of such chemicals through the REACH process in the EU. This review highlighted areas demanding further research. In this expanded edition; new information regarding products having fatty alcohol derivatives; the fate of these down-the-drain products in wastewater systems; and the usage of compound-specific stable isotope methods have been published. This work has been combined with a number of aspects relating to the addition of these compounds in the EU bio-based economy drive.
Noteworthy advances have been made since the first edition. Fatty Alcohols: Anthropogenic and Natural Occurrence in the Environment; 2nd Edition; (PDF) brings together all the dissimilar information regarding this group of chemicals that are of great interest to industry (as surfactants); environmental scientist (as biomarkers); and to regulators.
NOTE: The product includes the ebook; Fatty Alcohols: Anthropogenic and Natural Occurrence in the Environment; 2nd Edition in PDF. No access codes are included.
