2-Ethyl Hexanol

2-Ethyl Hexanol is a branched,eight-carbon, fatty alcohol. It is a colorless liquid that is poorly soluble in water but soluble in most organic solvents. It is produced on a massive scale for use in numerous applications such as solvents, flavors, and fragrances and especially as a precursor for production of other chemicals such as emollients and plasticizers. 2-Ethyl Hexanol can also be used as an octane booster when reacted with nitric acid. 2-Ethyl Hexanol is produced industrially by the aldol condensation of n-butyraldehyde, followed by hydrogenation of the resulting hydroxyaldehyde. It is also used as dispersing agent for pigment pastes. It is used in the production of plasticisers, acrylates, as a solvent in the paint and varnishes industries, as a wetting agent in textile industry, as a agent which improve cetane number in refining industry, it is also used in production of coat forming agents and antifoam agents.
