Alcohol as raw material for the production of plasticizers and auxiliaries in the chemical and allied industries.
Propylheptanol is a clear, high-boiling liquid with a mild odour. It is miscible with most common organic solvents, but is practically insoluble in water. Propylheptanol is a mixture of isomeric decyl alcohols and reacts accordingly.
An example of an application of practical significance is the formation of the corresponding esters in reaction with acids.
