Oleamide (Wikipedia)

Oleamide is an organic compound with the formula CH3(CH2)7CH=CH(CH2)7CONH2. It is the amide derived from the fatty acid oleic acid. It is a colorless waxy solid and occurs in nature. Sometimes labeled as a fatty acid primary amide (FAPA), it is biosynthesized from N-oleoylglycine.
