Description

General description

Decane is an organic solvent. Bifunctional conversion of decane over Pt/ZSM-22, Pt/ZSM-5 and Pt/USY catalysts was compared. Structure of single-phase (sodium di-2-ethylsulfosuccinate)/D2O/decane microemulsions was investigated by small-angle neutron scattering.

Application

Decane was used as solvent to investigate the self-association of cyclohexanols.

Packaging

1, 2.5 L in glass bottle
