Useful nitrogen derivatives can be prepared from either the erucic acid or mixed acids from the oil; behenyl amine is used in a corrosion inhibitor, disubstituted amides are effective plasticizers and erucamide is an excellent slip and antiblocking agent for plastic films. Compared to rapessed oil, crambe oil is more suitable for industrial use because it consistently contains a higher percentage of erucic acid. and Eastern Utilliz. AGFD 53. 75(22): 60 (1968). Eng.

Useful nitrogen derivatives can be prepared from either the erucic acid or mixed acids from the oil; behenyl amine is used in a corrosion inhibitor, disubstituted amides are effective plasticizers and erucamide is an excellent slip and antiblocking agent for plastic films. The low-melting characteristic is an advantage in adhesive uses and facilitates fluidized-bed coating, molding and extrusion; low moisture affinity contributes to excellent electrical properties and dimensional stability.
