Hydroxy fatty acid (HFA) esters of long-chain alcohols, such as hydroxy stearates, have potential applications from lubricants to cosmetics. These esters were synthesized enzymatically to overcome the problems associated with chemical processes. An immobilized lipase, Rhizomucor miehei, was employed as catalyst in the esterification reaction between hydroxy-stearic acid as a source of HFA and monohydric fatty alcohols (C8-C18). The yields of esters were in the range of 82-90% by conducting the reactions at 65 ± 2°C, 2-5 mm Hg pressure, and 10% lipase concentration. The products were analyzed by infrared spectroscopy, and some of their analytical characteristics were determined.
