Sources/Uses

"Naphthenic acid (CAS: 1338-24-5 ) is the name for an unspecific mixture of several cyclopentyl and cyclohexyl carboxylic acids with molecular weight of 120 to well over 700 atomic mass units. The main fraction are carboxylic acids with a carbon backbone of 9 to 20 carbons. Salts of naphthenic acids, which are naphthenates, are widely used as hydrophobic sources of metal ions in diverse applications." [Wikipedia]

Comments

Chromium (III) salts demonstrate mutagenic and tumorigenic potential in experimental animals; [Strem Chemicals MSDS] See "Naphthenic acid." See "Chromium."
