General description

1-Hexanol is produced from coconut oil and palm oils. It is used in the production of antiseptics, fragrances and perfumes. 1-Hexanol is also used as a solvent in the production of plasticizers.
1-Hexanol is a linear primary alcohol. It is formed as an intermediate during the catalytic transformation of cellulose. The ability of 1,1,3,3-tetramethylguanidine (TMG) in 1-hexanol solvent system to capture carbon dioxide has been assessed. The solubility of light fullerenes in 1-hexanol as a function of temperature and pressure was studied.

Application

1-Hexanol has been used as an odorant to study olfactory responses and to thin the dielectric layer of poly(4-vinylphenol) (PVP).
