A series of derivatives for identifying lauric, myristic, palmitic, stearic and oleic acids have been prepared. The ten best series of derivatives may be listed in the following order of decreasing importance: (1) N-acylcarbazole derivatives; (2) N-acyl-p-toluenesulfonamides; (3) p-phenyl-phenacyl esters; (4) N-acylphenothiazine derivatives; (5) N-acyl-2-nitro-p-toluidine derivatives; (6) N-acylsaccharin derivatives; (7) 2, 4-dinitrophenylhydrazides; (8) p-nitro-anilides; (9) phenylmercuric salts; (10) p-xenylamides.
