ISOFOL 18T

ISOFOL 18T alcohol is a primary, saturated alcohol mixture with defned branching of the carbon chain. It can be chemically described as mixture of 2-hexyldecanol, 2-hexyldodecanol, 2-octyldecanol and 2-octyldodecanol and is also referred to as C18 Guerbet alcohol. It is used in personal care. ISOFOL 18 T is an emollient, basic material for the production of emollient esters. For documents specific to a region, please contact Sasol using the 'Request Document' button.

Melting points of ISOFOL alcohols in comparison with linear NACOL alcohols

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
