Reactions of free methyl radicals and monolayers of potassium palmitate and of potassiumn-heptadecanoate on an aqueous surface yielded straight chain saturated fatty acids containing longer hydrocarbon chains than those of the reactant acids. Similar results were obtained from the reactions of free ethyl radicals and potassium palmitate under similar conditions. The results of this investigation indicate that extension of hydrocarbon chains by free radical addition reactions can be achieved if… CONTINUE READING
