Sebacic acid is a powdered white flaky crystal derived from castor oil using sulphuric acid via catalysts like phenol, sodium hydroxide, and zinc oxide. Lubricants, plasticisers, candles, hydraulic fluids, and cosmetics are a few industries that use sebacic acid.

Sebacic acid is commonly used in the aerospace and automotive industries because of its excellent lubricity, low-temperature fluidity, high flash points, and high thermal stability. The growing consumer preference for bio lubricants over traditional lubricants due to the ever-increasing focus on decreasing CO2 emissions and strict environmental policies is expected to drive the demand growth for sebacic acid.
