Fatty Acid Methyl Ester

Fatty acid methyl esters (FAME | C16H26O2 | 68990-52-3) are similarly classified as ‘green solvents’ due to their biodegradability, low VOC production and non-toxicity to humans. Similar to vegetable oils, FAME have lower volatility and higher flash point than petroleum based solvents.

Molecular formula:C16H26O2

Molecular weight:250.37

 Fatty acid methyl esters (FAME) are a type of fatty acid ester that are derived by transesterification of fats with methanol. 


fatty acid methyl esters 

(FAME) are similarly 

classified as ‘green solvents’ due 

to their biodegradability, low VOC 

production and non-toxicity to 

humans. Similar to vegetable oils, 

FAME have lower volatility and 

higher flash point than petroleum based solvents. Formulations 

made with FAME have reduced 

fire and explosion risks, are not 

susceptible to composition loss 

due to vaporisation during storage, 

and require less storage and 

transportation cost unlike petroleum 

solvent-based formulations.

FAME 

have viscosities that are closer 

to those of diesel, a traditional 

carrier solvent for pesticides. This 

reduction in viscosity leads to an 

increase in mobility and solvating 

power, making FAME more suitable 

as carrier solvents.
