General description

1-Hexanol is a linear primary alcohol, made up of six carbon atoms and is produced by the oligomerization of ethylene. There is a wide range of uses for 1-hexanol, including plasticizers, antiseptics, fragrances, pharmaceuticals, textiles, and leather finishing agents.

Application

1-Hexanol is used:
  • As an oil phase in the preparation of manganese zinc ferrite nanoparticles by precipitation in reverse microemulsion system.
  • As a solvent in the separation of carboxylic acids and tetrahydrofurfuryl alcohol from water.
  • As a solvent in the synthesis of ZnO (zinc oxide) quantum particles from zinc acetate by precipitation method.

Features and Benefits

1-Hexanol or Hexyl alcohol exhibits high reactivity at a lower temperature due to the alkane-like reaction pathways that begin at a secondary carbon site.
