Common NameErucic acid
DescriptionErucic acid, also known as cis-eruic acid or 22:1Omega9, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as very long-chain fatty acids. These are fatty acids with an aliphatic tail that contains at least 22 carbon atoms. Erucic acid is a very hydrophobic molecule, practically insoluble (in water), and relatively neutral.
