Isodecanol Production Cost Analysis 2021

Isodecanol or isodecyl alcohol is a mixture of alcohols prepared by the oxo process in which undecenes, belonging to the class of unsaturated aliphatic hydrocarbon, are reacted with carbon monoxide and hydrogen in the presence of a catalyst, followed by hydrogenation. They are also produced by other methods, like the Ziegler method, which includes the oxidation of trialkyl aluminium compounds. 

The molecular weight of this chemical compound is 158.32. In appearance, it is a colourless liquid with a mild alcohol odour. It is insoluble in water, and its melting point is 7 degrees centigrade, while its freezing point is 220 degrees centigrade.

It can be used as a chemical intermediate for plasticizers and dodecyl phthalate, and as an ingredient in synthetic lubricants. It also used as an agent in uranium refining, specialty solvent, and an antifoaming agent in textile processing.

This chemical compound must be stored in a cool, well-ventilated place, away from areas of high fire hazard, out of the direct rays of the sun, and must be periodically inspected.
