Fatty Alcohols

Univar Solutions offers a full line of straight chain primary fatty alcohols, from as few as 8 carbons to as many as 22 as well as custom blends. They are commonly referred to as Short Chain (Carbon Chain < 10), Mid-Cut, and Long Chain (Carbon Chain > 18). Natural fatty alcohols are derived from natural fats and oils by hydrogenating the corresponding fatty methyl ester and subsequent fractionation. Natural fatty alcohols have an even number of carbon atoms with a single functional alcohol group (-OH) attached at the first carbon. Synthetic fatty alcohols are produced from ethylene using the Ziegler reaction, which yields a chemically identical linear primary alcohol with an even numbered carbon chain.
 
With more than 120 distribution centers nationwide, our efficient private fleet with dedicated drivers, and our partnership with world-class suppliers, Univar Solutions is ready to serve your fatty alcohols needs.
