 Information @ a glance   


  • Propylheptanol is a mixture of isomeric decyl alcohols: 2-propylheptanol, 4-methyl-2-propylhexanol and 5-methyl-2-propylhexanol.
  • It is a clear and colorless, high boiling liquid with a mild characteristic odor. It is miscible with most common organic solvents but has very low water solubility.
  • 2-Propylheptyl alcohol is "oxoalcohol", meaning that it is produced from the hydroformylation ("oxo synthesis") of C9 alkenes followed by hydrogenation of the resulting aldehyde. The production route is similar to that for tripropylene.
  • 2-propylheptanol (2-PH), which is derived from valeraldehyde. World consumption of valeraldehyde will grow at the highest rate of all oxo chemicals, largely as a result of the commissioning of 2-PH capacity in Europe and China starting in late 2009 and continuing into 2013.
  • Synonyms are 2-Propylheptanol, 2-Propylheptan-1-ol, 1-Heptanol, 2-propyl-, 2-PROPYL-1-HEPTANOL, 2-Propylheptyl alcohol.
  • Phthalate esters prepared from this alcohol offer a number of advantages for flexible PVC applications, such as low volatility in vinyl for automotive products, long-term property retention, and excellent outdoor performance properties.
  • Demand for oxo chemicals in the United States is expected to grow moderately, at an average annual rate of almost 2% during 20082013. The long-term prospects for oxo chemicals in Western Europe improved considerably during 20052008, as consolidations and capacity reductions resulted in improved efficiencies and capacity utilization.
  • Demand for plasticizer alcohols largely follows the patterns of the leading world economies. The major end-use markets include construction/remodeling, automotive production and original equipment manufacture (OEM).
  • The major plasticizer producing regions, such as the United States and Western Europe, are experiencing moderate growth rates, while Japan is expected to see flat growth for plasticizers.
  • BASF is the largest producer of plasticizer alcohols, with production facilities in the United States, Germany, China and Malaysia.
