Catalyxx process converts ethanol into higher alcohols very efficiently
Our bio-based chemicals
n-Butanol or n-butyl alcohol or normal butanol is a primary alcohol with a 4-carbon structure and the chemical formula C4H9OH. n-Butanol is a clear, colorless liquid that is flammable. It has a characteristic banana-like odor. lt is used to make other chemicals (butyl acetate and butyl acrylates), as a solvent, or as an ingredient in formulated products such as cosmetics.
n-hexanol, n-hexyl alcohol, caproic alcohol, or normal hexanol is a primary organic alcohol with a 6-carbon structure and the chemical formula CH3(CH2)5OH. This colorless liquid is slightly soluble in water but miscible with ether and ethanol. Hexanol is used in perfumes and personal care products.
2-Ethylhexanol (abbreviated 2-EH) is a branched, eight-carbon chiral alcohol. It is a colorless liquid that is poorly soluble in water but soluble in most organic solvents. It is produced on a massive scale for use in numerous applications such as solvents, flavors, and fragrances and especially as a precursor for the production of other chemicals such as emollients and plasticizers.
