Thiopalmitic acid, C15H31COSH (m.p. 30.8–31.3°C), and thiomyristic acid, C13H27COSH (m.p. 19.8–20.3°C), were synthesized by the reaction of sodium hydrogen sulfide in ethanol with palmitoyl and myristoyl chlorides respectively. The infrared absorption spectra of thiopalmitic and thiomyristic acids indicate that both acids assumed the thiolic acid form. Dipalmitoyl disulfide (m.p. 76.0–76.5°C) and ethyl palmitate, and dimyristoyl disulfide (m.p. 70.5–71.5°C) and ethyl myristate were isolated as by-products.
