Cis-13-Docosenoamide is also known as Erucamide or Erucylamide. It is in the form of white flakes or beads. It is soluble in isopropanol, slightly soluble in alcohol and acetone.1 In industry, cis-13-docosenoamide is used in the formulations of anti-adhesive agents, lubricants, and lubricant additives to reduce their friction coefficient and to make films easier to handle.2 It is used as a standard to determine fatty acid amides in polyethylene packaging film by GC/MS.3
13-Docosenamide is the amide of docosenoic acid. It was first identified in the cerebrospinal fluid of sleep-deprived cats. It has also been detected in the cerebrospinal fluid of rats and humans. 13-Docosenamide causes reduced mobility and slightly lessened awareness in rats, whereas 9-octadecenamide induces physiological sleep.[Cayman Chemical]
