DI-C12-13 alkyl fumarate is chemically a mixture of different, synthetically produced di-esters (DI=acroynm for the double orchestra) of C12-13 aliphatic alcohols(alkanols) and fumaric acid. The C numbering "C n-nx" preceding the ester designation (alkyl fumarate) indicates the number or range of alkyl (carbon) chain lengths. In the di-ester "DI-C12-13 alkyl fumarate", the alkyl chain length consists of 12-13 C atoms.
DI-C12-13 alkyl fumarate is used in cosmetic products as a solvent and emollient.
