Lacceroic acid (or dotriacontanoic acid) is a saturated fatty acid.

Sources[edit]

Lacceroic acid can be derived by saponification of lacceryl lacceroate or by oxidation of laccerol and purification of the product.[1] It can also been isolated from stick lac wax, from which the name is derived.[2]

Derivatives[edit]

Ethyl lacceroate can be obtained as a crystalline solid (rhombic plates, mp 76 °C) by the action of HCl gas on lacceroic acid in boiling absolute alcohol.[1]
