Ethylhexanol
C8H18O
2-Ethylhexanol is commercialized in the following grades: technical grade; liquid grade; 99%; 95%
2-Ethylhexanol is the most widely used of the synthetically made higher aliphatic alcohols. This alcohol is miscible with most common organic solvents, and enters into the reactions that are typical for primary alcohols, such as esters formation with various acids. In this context, the main applications of 2-EH are in the production of: 2-ethylhexanol esters (plasticizers); 2-ethylhexyl acrylate, used in coating materials, adhesives, printing inks, impregnating agents, and reactive diluent/cross-linking agents; 2-Ethylhexyl nitrate, used as cetane improver; 2-Ethylhexyl phosphates, used as lubricant additives; Surfactants.
2-ethylhexanol is used as raw material in the production of the following derivates:: n-butyl octyl phthalate; 2-ethylhexyl acrylate; 2-ethylhexyl acetate; polymeric plasticizers

ethylhexanol
259
2-Ethylhexanol ranks, after the lighter alcohols (methanol to butanol), as the most important synthetic alcohol. It is an eight-carbon branched chain alcohol and appears as a clear, colorless liquid, with a characteristic odor. It is an organic solvent miscible in almost all organic solvents and practically insoluble in water and one of the most important oxo alcohols commercialized.
