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.
