Liquid Crystals from Coconut Oil Fatty Acids Abstract Liquid crystals are fluids that are between the solid and conventional liquid phases. Liquid crystals are in widespread use, especially in optical technologies.
They are synthesized by combining fatty acids with cholesterol. This study aims to utilize coconut oil as an alternative source of fatty acids for synthesizing liquid crystals since coconut is cheap and abundant in the Philippines. Coconut oil is 85 percent fatty acid. Introduction Liquid crystals are one of the foundations of an increasingly electronic world.
They have been used in medicine, chemistry, thermometry, entertainment, and even cancer research. It is unfortunate, then, that only a few in our country have concentrated on this newly developed field. This study stems from several previous researches on liquid crystals done at the Philippine Science High School.
Here, fatty acids from coconut oil were combined with cholesterol to form liquid crystals. Chemical Synthesis of Cholesteric Liquid Crystals.

FAQ. Frequently Asked Questions Questions about all Coconut Oils. What is the amount of Omega 3 fatty acids in Coconut Oil? None. Coconut oil is not a source of Omega 3 fatty acids. "Liquid Coconut Oil" or "MCT oil" are derivatives of coconut oil, and not real coconut oil.
They are manufactured oils, and they are byproducts of coconut. This study aims to utilize coconut oil as an alternative source of fatty acids for synthesizing liquid crystals since coconut is cheap and abundant in the Philippines.
Coconut oil is 85 percent fatty acid. The ability to be molded or shaped; in plastic fats, both solid crystals and liquid oil are present winternization the temperature of the oil is lowered to a point . Cholesteryl esters derived from coco-fatty acids were prepared and were found to exhibit the cholesteric and smectic mesophases.
Mixtures consisting of these esters and commercial nematic liquid crystals were characterized using DSC and polarizing microscopy.
Liquid coconut oil does not contain all the natural fatty acids that are present in its natural form. Coconut oil’s most dominant fatty acid is lauric acid (C12), and comprises 50% of real coconut oil. It is probably the most famous and most researched fatty acid in coconut oil, being linked to many health benefits.
