Procurement Resource provides latest prices of 2-Ethylhexan-1-ol. Each price database is tied to a user-friendly graphing tool dating back to 2014, which provides a range of functionalities: configuration of price series over user defined time period; comparison of product movements across countries; customisation of price currencies and unit; extraction of price data as excel files to be used offline.

Hydroformylation of propylene produces n-butyraldehyde, which can be done in a standalone plant or as the initial step in a fully integrated facility. In addition to 2-ethylhexanol, most facilities produce n-butanol and isobutanol. Oxo alcohols are alcohols that have been produced in this manner. The general process is quite similar to the Guerbet reaction, which is another way to make it.

The price of raw material propylene (Shandong) did not move significantly during the first quarter of 2022. The mainstream propylene price in Shandong was 8,400-8,500 RMB/MT on Friday, and the market was at a standstill. On the positive side, crude oil prices varied and climbed, particularly over the weekend, while the cost side remained solid. On the negative side, downstream demand was sluggish to respond, and the major cause was stiff demand. Due to the epidemic's impact, traffic in some places had recently been bad, and factory operating rates had plummeted. As a result, the prices of 2-ethylhexan-1-ol fluctuated accordingly.

About 2-Ethylhexan-1-ol:

2-Ethylhexan-1-ol, often known as 2-EH or 2-EH, is an eight-carbon chiral alcohol with a branching structure. It is a colourless liquid that is poorly miscible in water but miscible in the majority of organic solvents and fluids. It is produced in large quantities for use in a variety of applications, including solvents, flavours, and fragrances, as well as as a precursor for the production of other compounds such as emollients and plasticisers.

Production Processes:

  • Production of 2-Ethylhexan-1-ol from n-Butyraldehyde

In this method, n-butyraldehyde is first condensed to 2-ethyl propyl acrolein, which is subsequently reacted with hydrogen to generate 2-Ethylhexanol in this method.
