Shazand (Arak) Petrochemical 2-Ethylhexanol (2EH) 2EH Datasheet

2-ETHYLHEXANOL (2EH) is a clear, colorless, mobile and neutral liquid with a characteristic odor. It is miscible with most common organic solvents, but its miscibility with water is very limited. It enters into the reactions that are typical for primary alcohols. For instance, it readily forms esters with various acids. 2-ETHYLHEXANOL is the oldest, best known and most widely used of the synthetically made higher aliphatic alcohols.
