Methyl hexadecanoic acid belongs to the class of organic compounds known as fatty acid methyl esters. These are compounds containing a fatty acid that is esterified with a methyl group. They have the general structure RC(=O)OR', where R=fatty aliphatic tail or organyl group and R'=methyl group.


Methyl palmitate was found to partially biodegrade within 24 hours when inoculated with a mixed activated sludge in a Warburg respirator. A close structural analog to methyl palmitate, ethyl palmitate, was found to undergo 44% removal in 5 days when incubated with a sewage sludge seed。
