Melissic acid (or triacontanoic acid) is a saturated fatty acid.
Melissic acid gets its name from the Greek word melissa meaning bee, owing to its abundance in the nectar of the flowers which attract bees.
n-Triacontanoic acid was synthesized by Bleyberg and Ulrich (1931) and by G.M. Robinson.
Triacontanoic acid and triacontanamide (CH3(CH2)28-CONHI) can be self-assembled.
