Reports Available in Subscriptions

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.

Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand reports examining 2-Propylheptanol 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 (Q2 2019).

You can find below reports focused on 2-Propylheptanol production processes available in report subscriptions offered by Intratec.

2-Propylheptanol Production Process - Cost Analysis | 2-PH E11A

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.
