Possible Interaction: Ethanol and Octanoic Acid




Octanoic Acid

Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

The free energy driving force pushing OA to the surface decreases with increasing ethanol concentration, and becomes insignificant (i.e., less than kT) for ethanol concentrations above 70%.
Thus, the decrease in the effectiveness of OA in reducing the surface tension at higher ethanol concentrations can be attributed to the decrease in the free energy driving force keeping OA at the surface.

Rapid exposure of cells to mild ethanol stress also led to increased resistance to lethal concentrations of octanoic acid.

Octanoic and decanoic acids increase the rate of loss of Saccharomyces cerevisiae viability caused by lethal concentrations of ethanol , the specific death rate being an exponential function of the acid concentration.
