2-Propanol Price Trend

Acetone is reacted with hydrogen in the presence of a hydrogenation catalyst to produce 2-propanol. On March 22th, the ketone's East China market was anticipated to be 5900 RMB/MT during early domestic acetone trading. The price of international crude oil soared, shippers' spirits were up, and the offer was firm. The acetone market in the United States was brisk. Contract customers in East China aggressively assimilated the dominant bargaining range of 5900 RMB/MT. However, under the effect of the pandemic, logistical transportation is currently poor. Volatility in raw material prices also affected the prices of 2-propanol.
