Biological Activity

Description 1-Hexadecanol is a fatty alcohol used to make other chemicals.
In vitro

1-Hexadecanol is often used to make other chemicals used in detergents, cleaners, to help make plastics, adhesives and to help change the thickness of liquid products. 1-Hexadecanol is also used directly in cosmetics and personal care products. It is used as a skin softener and to help skin keep its moisture. It helps keep oils and water mixed together and change the thickness of liquid products. 1-Hexadecanol is used to turn creams an opaque color which protects the product from light. It can also be used as a lubricant for nuts, bolts, washers, pins and other fasteners. [1]

In vivo 1-Hexadecanol has been tested in many toxicology studies. These studies show 1-Hexadecanol has a low toxicity when it is breathed in, swallowed, or touches the skin. The main hazard of 1-Hexdecanol is it can cause mild to moderate skin and eye irritation. The irritation is short lasting and will go away after you are no longer exposed. 1-Hexadecanol does not cause damage to genes. 1-Hexadecanol is easily broken down by the body. This prevents 1-Hexadecanol from building up in the body. [1]

Step 1: Enter information below (Recommended: An additional animal making an allowance for loss during the experiment)

mg/kg g μL

Step 2: Enter the in vivo formulation (This is only the calculator, not formulation. Please contact us first if there is no in vivo formulation at the solubility Section.)

% DMSO % % Tween 80 % ddH2O

Calculation results:

Working concentration: mg/ml;

Method for preparing DMSO master liquid: mg drug pre-dissolved in μL DMSO ( Master liquid concentration mg/mL, Please contact us first if the concentration exceeds the DMSO solubility of the batch of drug. )

Method for preparing in vivo formulation: Take μL DMSO master liquid, next addμL PEG300, mix and clarify, next addμL Tween 80, mix and clarify, next add μL ddH2O, mix and clarify.

Method for preparing in vivo formulation: Take μL DMSO master liquid, next add μL Corn oil, mix and clarify.

Note: 1. Please make sure the liquid is clear before adding the next solvent.
2. Be sure to add the solvent(s) in order. You must ensure that the solution obtained, in the previous addition, is a clear solution before proceeding to add the next solvent. Physical methods such
as vortex, ultrasound or hot water bath can be used to aid dissolving.
