Application

2-Ethyl-1-hexanol is suitable for use in a study to compare its susceptibilities of dynamic heat capacity and dielectric polarization under isothermal conditions. It may be used to study lipase-catalyzed transesterification (alcoholysis) of rapeseed oil and 2-ethyl-1-hexanol in the absence of solvent. 2-Ethyl-1-hexanol may be used in broadband dielectric spectroscopy studies of the polyalcohols- glycerol, xylitol and sorbitol. It may be used in the preparation of porous beads.

General description

2-Ethyl-1-hexanol is a monohydroxy alcohol reagent. It is a glass-forming alcohol.
