2-Propylheptyl alcohol
2-Propylheptanol (a.k.a. 2-PH, 2-Propylheptyl alcohol) is a branched fatty alcohol, primarily used in the production of plasticizers and surfactants applied in detergents or industrial cleaning agents, and in the manufacture of lubricants and acrylates in adhesives applications. This fatty alcohol is produced on commercial scale mainly by OXO synthesis, followed by aldol condensation and hydrogenation steps.
The main applications of 2-Propylheptanol are associated with its use as a chemical intermediate in the production of plasticizers, resins and solvents. It is also used in mining additives; surfactants; detergents; plasticizing esters (for faux vinyl leather, laminates, wires, and cables); solvents; and acetates synthesis.

2-Propylheptanol Production from Butenes and Syngas

This report presents the economics of 2-Propylheptanol (2-PH) production from butenes and syngas located in the United States. Initially, butenes react with syngas in a hydroformylation reaction, yielding n-valeraldehyde. This step uses a conventional OXO-alcohol technology. Then, the valeraldehyde is submitted to an aldolization, forming 2-Propyl-2-heptenal and water. Finally, the 2-Propyl-2-heptenal is hydrogenated, yielding 2-PH.

The cost analyses presented in the report 2-PH E11A target a 120 kta (kilometric tons per annum) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

2-Propylheptanol Production from Valeraldehyde

This report presents the economics of 2-Propylheptanol (2-PH) production from n-valeraldehyde in the United States. In this process, the valeraldehyde feed is first submitted to an aldolization reaction, catalyzed by sodium hydroxide, which converts two molecules of valeraldehyde into 2-Propyl-2-heptenal and water. Then, the 2-Propyl-2-heptenal is hydrogenated, yielding 2-PH.

2-Ethylhexanol Production from Propylene and Syngas

This report presents the economics of 2-Ethylhexanol (2-EH) production from propylene and syngas located in the United States. Initially, propylene reacts with syngas in a hydroformylation reaction, yielding n-butyraldehyde. This step uses a conventional OXO-alcohol technology. Then, the n-butyraldehyde is submitted to an aldolization, and is subsequently dehydrated to 2-ethylpropylacrolein (EPA). Finally, the EPA is hydrogenated, yielding 2-EH.

The cost analyses presented in the report 2-EH E11A target a 160 kta (kilometric tons per annum) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

Isodecanol Production

This report presents the economics of Isodecanol production from nonenes in a typical industrial process based on cobalt catalyst. Initially, nonenes are submitted to hydroformylation to form the respectives C10 aldehydes. The aldehydes are then hydrogenated to the corresponding C10 alcohols. The industrial plant is located in the United States.

Intratec Methodology. Intratec distilled its expertise, gained from more than a decade of supporting companies worldwide in the analysis of commodities markets and process economics, and developed a consistent report development methodology.

The methodology ensures a holistic, coherent, and consistent techno-economic evaluation, guiding the development of a report that allows readers to fully understand a specific process technology for the production of a commodity. In addition to being based on a common methodology, all Intratec reports that approach industrial processes have a common structure, i.e., indexes, tables and charts share similar standards. This ensures that Intratec’s readers know upfront what they will get and, more than that, will be able to compare technologies addressed in different reports.

Our methodology is continuously tested and proven by the many corporations involved with the commodities sector, R&D centers, EPC companies, financial institutions and government agencies that rely on our reports.
