Alfol® C6 – C20+ Synthetic Alcohols

Univar Solutions offers Alfol alcohol homologs




Alfol alcohol homologs exhibit very high purity and linearity, making them ideally suited as reagents and intermediates for the manufacturing of many derivatives including ethoxylates, esters, amines, acetals, thiols, aldehydes, phthalates, and acrylates and used directly in numerous applications.
 
Through our expanded relationship with Sasol, we offer the complete line of Alfol alcohols. These domestically manufactured, petrochemical-based primary alcohol homologs from the Ziegler process have even number carbon chains that range from C6 to C20+. As a result, Alfol alcohol derivatives are biodegradable and are physically and chemically equivalent to alcohols made from such oleochemical sources as coconut oil and palm kernel oil. Alfol alcohols are available in various purities, as well as blends and single cuts.
 
Alfol alcohols undergo all the chemical reactions typical of primary alcohols. These include esterifications, ethoxylation, sulfation, oxidation, and many others. Consistently, high product yields are obtained with the Alfol alcohols due to their purity and linearity.
 
These versatile alcohols can be used in plastic additives, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, water evaporation retardants, defoamers for the paper industry, pour point depressants for crude oil, additives for the leather and textiles industries, flotation aid, detergents and cleaners, metal processing, agrochemicals, flavors, fragrances, paints, inks, coatings, and adhesives.
