- ... The unsaturated sites in oleic 2-ethylhexyl estolide esters (containing 35 % monoenic fatty acids) were converted into epoxide and five-membered cyclic carbonate groups and the products characterized by Fourier transform infrared spectra (FTIR), 1H, and 13C nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopies. Epoxidation of the alkene bonds was accomplished using performic acid generated in situ from ...
