Reports Available in Subscriptions

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 (Q2 2019).

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

Isononanol Production Process - Cost Analysis | Isononanol E11A

This report presents an economic study of Isononanol production from octenes in the presence of a rhodium catalyst. It assumes a plant located in the United States using a process similar to Johnson Matthey OXO alcohols process. Initially, octenes are submitted to hydroformylation to form the respectives C9 aldehydes. The aldehydes are then hydrogenated to the corresponding C9 alcohols.

Isononanol Production Process - Cost Analysis | Isononanol E12A

In this report, the economics of Isononanol production from octenes is analyzed based on a typical cobalt catalyst process, also assuming a plant located in the USA. Initially, octenes are submitted to hydroformylation to form the respectives C9 aldehydes. The aldehydes are then hydrogenated to the corresponding C9 alcohols.
