Can you show you the organic structure of cetearyl alcohol and tell me what organic family it is?


Cetearyl alcohol is actually a mixture of both stearyl alcohol and cetyl alcohol (refer to links below for structures). Both of these compounds would be considered "fatty alcohols" due to their long carbon chains. Fatty alcohols are in the aliphatic hydrocarbon family. To draw the structure of "cetearyl alcohol" you would actually have to draw the structure of cetyl alcohol and the structure of stearyl alcohol.
