Isononanol (a.k.a. isononyl alcohol) is generally a mixture of aliphatic, branched alcohol isomers of molecular formula C9H20O. It is included in the group of plasticizer alcohols, which includes mostly branched aliphatic alcohols with chain length ranging from 6 to 13 carbons (e.g. 2-Ethylhexanol, the major plasticizer alcohol in the world). The mixture of Isononanol isomers usually includes methyloctanols, ethylheptanols and propylhexanols, as well as dimethylheptanols and trimethylhexanols(the picture in the bottom of this page presents the molecular structure of 7-methyloctanol). The presence and the amounts of each aforementioned compounds is dependent on the feed and catalyst employed in the production process.
Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand reports examining Isononanol production. 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 (2019/20).
