Abstract

The epoxidation of alkenes and other unsaturated hydrocarbon chains constitutes one of the most useful reactions in organic synthesis. As the epoxide group is an active intermediate, it can be readily transformed to the required functionality. Here, we report the synthesis of seven useful branched 2-ethylhexyl α-hydroxy stearate esters from commercially available oleic acid and common organic acids. The common organic acids used herein were octanoic, nananoic, lauric, myristic, palmitic, stearic and behenic acids. One of the products, the behenic ester of 2-ethylhexyl hydroxy stearate showed to have pour point, flash point and viscosity indices of -53 °C, 161 °C, and 215 cp, respectively, which is favourable properties in the synthesis of a bio-based lubrication base fluid. Overall, the data indicated that most of these synthesized derivative compounds have significant potential as lubricant base oil.
