2-Ethylhexanol (2EH)

2-Ethylhexanol. Acts as a solvent as well as defoaming agent. It is manufactured using the OXO process involving hydroformylation of propylene to N-butyraldehyde followed by an aldol condensation and reduction to produce the ethyl hexanol. 2-Ethylhexanol (2EH) is a clear, colorless, mobile and neutral liquid with a characteristic odor. It is the oldest, best known and most widely used of the synthetically made higher aliphatic alcohols. It enters into the reactions that are typical for primary alcohols and it readily forms esters with various acids. Used for the formation of lacquers and coatings when slow evaporation is desired. Also used in the varnish and textile printing applications.
