"The present investigation was undertaken to find out any comparable collecting property of some of the industrial naphthenic acids available in the market with that of commercial grade of oleic acid so that some information may be available in selecting naphthenic acids as flotation collectors. In the flotation industry, usefulness of oleic acid as non-metallic minerals collector is well established. On the other hand, the use of naphthenic acids as flotation collector has been reported only in few cases. Even in those cases, no attempt has been made to correlate their collecting properties with that of their physical and chemical properties"--Introduction, page 1.
