For many years the problem of manufacturing lubricating greases that will meet the needs of this machine age has been attracting the attention of the oil chemist. While some advancement has been made in the production of organic soaps as emulsifying agents, the vast possibilities opened up in this field of endeavor have scarcely been touched upon and the greater part of the work still remains in the experimental stage. In such a broad field it was possible to explore only a portion and .so for this research the number of organic compounds selected as emulsifying agents was limited to five, all five being nitrogen containing derivatives of stearic acid.
