Fatty acids are a class of carboxylic acid compounds consisting of hydrocarbon groups linked to carboxylic acids. They are widely used as raw materials in various industries and as intermediate products in the chemical synthesis of antibacterial pesticides and other products.

It is used as a raw material for plasticizers, stabilizers and flame retardants in the plastics industry; lubricants, rust inhibitors and hydraulic fluids in the petroleum and metalworking industries; surfactants for textile coatings and mineral processing; the production of alkyl chlorides of agricultural products, methyl octanoate; and synthetic triglycerides of caprylic acid, pentaerythritol esters and polyol esters as metal lubricants, lubricants and emollients for personal care products.
