Methyl oleate is a fatty acid methyl ester resulting from the formal condensation of the carboxy group of oleic acid with methanol. It derives from an oleic acid.
Methyl oleate is similarly classified as 'green solvents' due to their biodegradability, low VOC production and non-toxicity to humans. Similar to vegetable oils, methyl oleate have lower volatility and higher flash point than petroleum based solvents. Formulations made with methyl oleate 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.
methyl oleate 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 methyl oleate more suitable as carrier solvents.
