Isodecanol (a.k.a. isodecyl alcohol) is a higher aliphatic alcohol. Following esterification with dicarboxylic acids. Isodecanol yield synthetic ester oils with outstanding properties. It is also a starting material for a wide range of derivatives, which are employed as textile auxiliaries, stabilizers, flotation agents, and antifoaming agents, and are used in detergents, lubricants, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and pesticides (esters with 2,4-dichloro- and 2,4,5-trichlorophenoxyacetic acid are herbicides). Isodecyl is produced from the oligomerization of propylene and butenes with phosphoric acid, yielding olefins up to C15, which are then hydrated, resulting in a mixture of higher alcohols, including Isodecyl.
Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand reports examining Isodecanol production costs. Each study describes an industrial plant, including main process units and site infrastructure, and presents an independent analysis of capital and operating costs. All reports are based on the most recent economic data available (Q2 2023).
