Mineral oil is a mixture of compounds. Personality characteristics colorless, oily liquid. Density, 0.83 to 0.86, the surface tension at 25 degrees is slightly below 35 dyne / cm. Insoluble in water, alcohol. Soluble in solvents such as benzene, ether, oils. Viscosity is ISO 100.
Mineral oil is made by refining more rugged lubricant to eliminate unsaturated compounds or volatile. It is derived from naphthenic or paraffin distillates by sulfuric acid or by the use of hydrogenation. Hydrogenation removes aromatic amines and unsatured compounds and remove all the nitrogen and sulfur-containing components. Mineral oils consist mainly of saturated aliphatic and cyclic hydrocarbons.
