2-Propylheptanol Production Cost Analysis 2021

In appearance, 2-propylheptanol (2PH), also known as 2-propyl-1-heptanol or isodecanol, is a colourless waxy or oily solid. 2-Propylheptanol is oxo alcohol, i.e., this chemical compound is manufactured from the hydroformylation of C4 alkenes and the hydrogenation of the resulting aldehyde. The manufacturing route is similar to that for 2-ethylhexanol.

2-PH or 2-propylheptanol is a branched C10 fatty alcohol. It is primarily used as plasticizer alcohol and as raw material for making surfactants used in detergents and in industrial cleaning agents for hard surface cleaning. It is used in hand and body soaps as well. Other uses of 2-propylheptanol include as a raw material for the production of lubricants and acrylates for adhesives applications. It is also used in various crop protection products.

2-Propylheptanol is a clear, high-boiling liquid with a mild odour. It is miscible in most common organic solvents but is practically insoluble in water. It is a mixture of isomeric decyl alcohols that can react proportionately.

Procurement Resource provides an in-depth cost analysis of 2-Propylheptanol production. The report incorporates the manufacturing process with detailed process and material flow, capital investment, operating costs along with financial expenses and depreciation charges.
