General description

Decane is an alkane hydrocarbon. It exists as a colourless flammable liquid. It is mostly used as solvent. Its vapors may be narcotic at high concentrations.

Application

Refer to the product′s Certificate of Analysis for more information on a suitable instrument technique. Contact Technical Service for further support.
Decane may have been used as internal standard in GC analysis for determining the product yield during iron-catalyzed cross coupling performed of primary/secondary alkyl halides with aryl Grignard reagent.

The one-step transformation of C(7)-C(12) linear alkanes into more valuable oxygenates provides heterogeneous catalysis with a major challenge. In evaluating the potential of a classic mixed-metal-oxide catalyst, we demonstrate new insights into the reactivity of adsorbed oxygen species. During the...

Aromatic hydrocarbons are among the most important building blocks in the chemical industry. Benzene, toluene and xylenes are obtained from the high temperature thermolysis of alkanes. Higher alkylaromatics are generally derived from arene-olefin coupling, which gives branched products--that is, secondary...
