2-Ethylhexanoic acid

2-Ethylhexanoic (2-EHA) acid is a versatile monocarboxylic acid chemical intermediate.



2-EHA is used in the production of corrosion inhibitors for automotive coolants.

This monomer is used in the synthesis of alkyd resins provides improved yellowing resistanct than the standard fatty acids. It is particularly suitable for stoving enamels and two-component coatings. It is also used as a raw material for metal based paint driers.

2-EHA is a major raw material for polyolesters used in synthetic lubricants.

Personal Care
In cosmetics, 2-EHA is used to produce emollients.

The production of polyvinylbutyral (PVB) plasticizers and polyvinylchloride (PVC) stabilizers in the form of metal salts. Other applications include, catalyst for polymer production, raw material for acid chloride and fragrances.
