2-Ethylhexanoic (2-EHA) acid is a chemical intermediate used in esters for Polyvinylbutyral film plasticizers and synthetic lubricants, in metal salts for paint dryers, in automotive coolants, PVC stabilizers, cosmetics and various other applications.
Di-(2-ethylhexyl)amine (Di-2-EHA) is a secundary dialkylamine. The raw material for Di-2-EHA is 2-Ethylhexanol, an oxo alcohol based on Propene (steamcracker C3 value chain). Di-2-EHA is used in many different applications, however, the main volumes are consumed for the production of corrosion inhibitors.
1,2-Ethylenediamine (EDA) is used mainly as a building block for crop protection products, in the synthesis of chelating agents and for low-temperature-active bleaching agents. The many other applications of 1,2-ethylenediamine (EDA) include polyamides, lubricants, fuel additives and textiles.
Lupragen® N107 is used as a polyurethane catalyst for flexible foam, semi-rigid foam and rigid foam. By its structure Lupragen® N107 can be incorporated into the polyurethane foam (""low VOC"" catalyst).
Morpholine is an important building block for rubber chemicals and finds a multitude of applications in other industries. It is used as an intermediate for water treatment, the production of pharmaceutical and agrocultural products as well as optical brightners.
Propylamine, also called Mono-propylamine (MPA), is an aliphatic primary amine, part of the family of the Alkyl amines. It is a versatile intermediate with a variety of applications. The main applications can be found in the production of agricultural chemicals and active pharmaceutical ingredients.
Tributylamine is a tertiary amine which belongs to the class of trialkylamines. Tributylamine is used as proton scavenger in a variety of chemical processes (API, AgChem, …) and to produce Quats (e.g. tributylmethyl and tetrabutyl ammonium bromide, chloride or bisulphate) which are used as phase transfer catalysts.
Tripropylamine is a tertiary amine which belongs to the class of trialkylamines. The main application for Tripropylamine is the prod uction of quats, which are used as phase transfer catalyst. Smaller volumes are used as proton scavenger or as molecular template in the production of microporous inorganic catalysts.
