Various compounds are synthesized from different types of raw materials. Different type of oils such as palm kernel oil, crude oil, fats; andirobas oil, crambe oil, animal extracted oil etc. are promising raw materials. Compounds such as palmitic, oleic and stearic acids can be synthesized from these types of raw materials. Hydrolysis of oil is essential and important step in synthesis of various compounds. Investigations are reported on oil hydrolysis and factors affecting it. Current review summarizes research and studies on hydrolysis with emphasis on oil hydrolysis.
