Production Process

  • Production of DOP via Esterification 

DOP is prepared at atmospheric pressure or in a vacuum by heating an excess of n-octanol with phthalic anhydride using an esterification catalyst like sulphuric acid or p-toluenesulphonic acid. Thus, esterification of n-octanol with phthalic anhydride in the presence of a catalyst gives DOP.
