Description

General description

1-Octanol (n-Octanol) is an ionic liquid and a linear alcohol having an aromatic odor.It has a relatively high boiling point, low water solubility and moderate viscosity. It can be synthesized from capric esters via catalytic hydrogenation. Its oxidative decomposition in the presence of anchored photocatalysts (anchored titanium oxide catalysts and standard TiO2 powder) has been investigated. Its liquid-phase oxidation to 1-octanal in the presence of Ti/Si binary oxide catalysts has been reported. It has gained wide recognition as an extraction solvent in analytical chemistry.

Application

1-Octanol may be used in the preparation of crystalline poly(vinylidene fluoride) (PVDF) membranes.
