General Description of 2-Ethylhexanol
2-Ethylhexanol, A branched , eight-carbon , a colorless liquid that is hardly soluble in water, soluble in most organic solvents.
Most brilliant specifications of this product are high-boiling point, low-volatility solvent fast, waxes, dyes and insecticides. Raw material for manufacture of plasticizers, lubricants and other chemical products such as paints and coatings.

2-Ethylhexanol(2EH) is a clean, colorless, neutral liquid with a good characteristic odor, and the odor is heavy, earthy, and slightly floral and a light, sweet floral fragrance.
It is miscible with most common organic solvents, but its miscibility with water is very limited. It enters into the reactions that are typical for primary alcohols. For example, it readily forms esters with various Acids.
It is one of the oldest, best known and most widely used alcohols.
Uses of 2-Ethylhexanol
It is produced for use in numerous applications such as solvents, flavors, fragrances and especially as a precursor for producing of other chemicals such as emollients and plasticizers.
It is encountered in natural plant fragrances. The esters of 2-ethylhexanol with dicarboxylic acids are excellent plasticizers for synthetic resins and rubber and include phthalates, adipates and sebacates.
Its main application is as a feedstock in the manufacture of low volatility esters. Other plasticizers that can be gotten from 2-ethylhexanol are the corresponding ester of adipic acid and para-hydroxybenzoic acid.
It is also used as a solvent and has a particular use in the formation of lacquers and coatings when slow evaporation is needed.
2-Ethylhexanol is also used in the photographic, varnish, rubber latex, textile printing and ceramic industries and can be used to advantage wherever foaming is undesirable.
Packing of 2-Ethylhexanol
Drum, ISO tank , flexi tank are the most common packing for it.
