[31] we can say that aromatic compounds which exhibit synergism are 3-methyl-1-butanol, 3,7-dimethyl-2, 6-octadien-1-ol,3-phenyl propenal, and dodecanoic acid. The DFA and cross validation exhibit confusion matrix with a prediction error of 0% (Table 8).
The principal compounds in this analysis are 3-methyl-1-butanol, 3-methylbutyl acetate, 3-methylbutyl butanoate, dodecanoic acid, and phenylmethyl butanoate.
To obtain a superhydrophobic surface, an acetone solution of dodecanoic acid (1 g/100 mL) was sprayed onto the hot PS coating surface through a spraying gun with a flow rate of about 0.07 mL/(s [cm.sub.2]) for 3 s.
To recover the superhydrophobicity, the sample was heated to 200[degrees]C and then the acetone solution of dodecanoic acid was sprayed onto the hot surface with a flow rate of about 0.07 mL/(s [cm.sub.2]).

This fatty acid profiling revealed the occurrence of dodecanoic acid (C12:0), tetradecanoic acid (C14:0), 3-hydroxy tetradecanoic acid (3-OH C14:0) and hexadecanoic acid (C16:0) in the lipid A component of S.
Peaks at 7.75, 13.43 and 19.79 min were identified as dodecanoic acid (C12:0), tetradecanoic acid (C14:0) and hexadecanoic acid (C16:0) respectively.
For the polymerization of CL with the protonated [omega]-amino dodecanoic acid exchanged MMT, the molar mass is 7.8 kg/mol with a high monomer conversion (92%) and again a narrow molecular weight distribution (sample PCLC8).
These aldehydes were identified as tridecanal, 9-octadecenal and octadecanal, while the fatty acids were identified as dodecanoic acid, octadecanoic acid and n-hexadecanoic acid as a major compound (Table-2).
The polymers examined herein are two grades of plasticized poly-12-amino dodecanoic acid. These are two commercial grades named PA12-P20 and PA12-P40 (2) containing, respectively, a low and high percentage of plasticizer.
In particular, the selenium and potassium in Brazil nuts contributed to a better night's sleep, while the butanoic and dodecanoic acids in milk were linked to unbroken sleep patterns.
In particular, a glass of milk and a handful of Brazil nuts could help, thanks to the selenium and potassium in the nuts and the butanoic and dodecanoic acids in the milk.
