English term or phrase: fatty alkyl polyglycol
Es geht mir hier um den Bestandteil "fatty". Wie sagt man da im Deutschen?

German translation:Fettalkohol-Polyglykol
Explanation:
Not exactly sure since it sounds a bit tautological (Polyglykol itself is a kind of alcohol)

Kucera Dict. of Chemistry lists entry "fatty alkyl" for compound noun "fatty alkyl sulphate = Fettalkoholsulfat".

Independently seen, "fatty" could mean "fettig", "fetthaltig", "Fett-".
