Purity & Quality Control
|Description||1-Hexadecanol is a fatty alcohol used to make other chemicals.|
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. 
|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. |

* Please note that Selleck tests the solubility of all compounds in-house, and the actual solubility may differ slightly from published values. This is normal and is due to slight batch-to-batch variations.
Calculate the mass, volume or concentration required for a solution. The Selleck molarity calculator is based on the following equation:
Mass (mg) = Concentration (mM) × Volume (mL) × Molecular Weight (g/mol)
*When preparing stock solutions, please always use the batch-specific molecular weight of the product found on the via label and MSDS / COA (available on product pages).
Calculate the dilution required to prepare a stock solution. The Selleck dilution calculator is based on the following equation:
Concentration (start) x Volume (start) = Concentration (final) x Volume (final)
This equation is commonly abbreviated as: C1V1 = C2V2 ( Input Output )
* When preparing stock solutions always use the batch-specific molecular weight of the product found on the vial label and MSDS / COA (available online).

Definitions of molecular mass, molecular weight, molar mass and molar weight:
Molecular mass (molecular weight) is the mass of one molecule of a substance and is expressed in the unified atomic mass units (u). (1 u is equal to 1/12 the mass of one atom of carbon-12)
Molar mass (molar weight) is the mass of one mole of a substance and is expressed in g/mol.
