2-Propylheptanol Production Cost Analysis 2020
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.
