Linoleic acid is a polyunsaturated omega-6 fatty acid. It is a colorless liquid that is virtually insoluble in water but soluble in many organic solvents. It typically occurs in nature as a triglyceride (ester of glycerin) rather than as a free fatty acid.
Linoleic acid is obtained from the hydrolysis -chemical decomposition in which a compound is split into other compounds by reacting with water- of vegetable oils rich in linoleic acid (mainly sunflower and soybean oils). The obtained fatty acid is purified by further distillation.

|Linoleic acid finds extensive uses in various industries:
|Cosmetic: protects the skin against loss of water and hence is used in moisturizers; it has anti-inflammatory properties and is used for acne reduction.
|Industrial: In the paints industry for manufacture of quick-drying oils which are used in oil paints and varnishes; making soaps, emulsifiers, and surfactants; to manufacture Arachidonic acid which has several health benefits.
|Pharmaceutical: Since it is an essential fatty acid, it is used as a dietary supplement.

Cetylpyridinium chloride is the chloride salt form of cetylpyridinium, a quaternary ammonium with broad-spectrum antimicrobial activity. Upon topical administration, cetylpyridinium chloride is positively charged and reacts with the negatively charged microbial cell surfaces, thereby destroying the integrity of the cell membrane.
N2-Isobutyryl-2′-O-methyl-guanosine (IBG) is a modified nucleoside that has gained significant attention in recent years due to its potential therapeutic and industrial applications. IBG is a derivative of guanosine, a nucleoside that is a building block of RNA and DNA.
Trimethylaluminium belongs to class of organometallics. It is a highly reactive chemical and its solution in toluene is normally used to facilitate workability. Its general applications are in cross coupling and carboalumination reactions.
Octenidine dihydrochloride is a cationic surfactant, with a gemini-surfactant structure. Since 1987, it has been used primarily in Europe as an antiseptic prior to medical procedures, including on neonates. It is safe to handle and chemically stable.
Allyl Glycidyl Ether (AGE) is a multifunctional organic intermediate made from epichlorohydrin and allyl chloride and is featured by high functionality and low chlorine content. Since it has an epoxy group and an allyl group, AGE reacts with a wide range of compounds.
Liposomal iron involves encapsulating iron molecules within lipid bilayers. This encapsulation protects the iron from interactions with other compounds, enhance its stability, improve its bioavailability and low incidence of side effects.
Polyethylene glycols (PEG), also known as macrogols, are liquid or solid polymers of the general formula H(OCH2CH2)n OH, where n is greater or equal to four.
