ISOFOL 12 Features & Benefits
Applications & Uses
ISOFOL Alcohols and their derivatives are used as raw materials and intermediates in many application areas including:
- Lubricants – converted to esters having improved hydrolytic stability and lower pour points than linear counterparts.
- Cosmetics and Pharmaceuticals – an odorless ingredient of creams, lotions, and ointments.
- Personal Care – sulfate derivative gives low foaming cleansing.

Technical Details & Test Data
The ISOFOL alcohols C12 to C24 are liquid at ambient temperature, whereas corresponding linear and saturated alcohols are solid. While oleyl alcohol starts to solidify at approx. 10 °C, ISOFOL alcohol of similar chain lengths remains liquid
The temperature-dependant kinematic viscosity of ISOFOL alcohols is shown in Figure
