The cost of the raw materials 2-EH and PA decreased, lowering the total cost of DOP. The price of downstream plastic PVC plummeted precipitously, and demand decreased. While the number of DOP makers climbed slowly at first, the supply of DOP increased, easing the shortfall.

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.
