2-Octyl-1-dodecanol, also known as octyldodecanol, is a Guerbet alcohol because it has a branch at the beta position. Compared to arachidyl alcohol, this linear alcohol polymer with the same molecular weight has a lower melting point but lower volatility.
2-Octyl-1-dodecanol is a colorless and transparent liquid under normal conditions. Soluble in: mineral oil, cyclopentasiloxane, isopropyl myristate, caprylic/capric triglyceride, olive oil, etc.
Octyldodecanol can be used to study its interaction with hexameric capsules of resorcinol arenes. It has good penetration ability and good solubility for functional additives.
Octyldodecanol has a transdermal promoting effect and can promote the transdermal absorption of naproxen. For drugs with poor transdermal performance, microemulsion with octyldodecanol as auxiliary material can improve the transdermal speed.
Because of its unique properties, 2-Octyl-1-dodecanol is suggested for use in body lotions, body cleans, oil/water softening creams, cleansing creams, anti-wrinkle lotions, skin lotions, hydrating lipsticks, makeup.
Application fields: 2-Octyl-1-dodecanol is widely used in cosmetics, detergent industry dispersants, fiber lubricants, printing ink moisturizing additives, advanced lubricant additives and other fields.

2-Octyl-1-dodecanol is often used as a conditioner, emollient, etc. in the field of personal care products. Used in cosmetics and external preparations, it has the function of emulsifier and lubricant. as follows:
When 2-Octyl-1-dodecanol is used in cosmetics, it should be tested for harmful substances according to local regulations and standards, or further microbiological tests should be carried out.
2-Octyl-1-dodecanol can be used as an intermediate in medicine, organic and materials.
It has been used as a diluent in extractant screening studies to recover putrescine (butene-1,4-diamine, BDA) and cadaverine (pentene-1,5) from aqueous solutions (fermentation broth) by liquid-liquid extraction -diamine, PDA).
Used as lubricating oil/cutting fluid: octyldodecanol is known to have excellent lubricity according to the four-ball wear scar test data. After high temperature decomposition, there is little carbon residue and no coking, and the processing surface is very clean, so it is often used in many processing environments that require no residue and high cleanliness.
For steel plate rolling: 2-Octyl-1-dodecanol can be used as base oil and lubricant additive. Has a large range of applications, especially appropriate for metal reducing liquids and also rolling fluids with great annealing tidiness. In metal rolling, it has excellent lubrication, low coking and high cleanliness, and is widely used in high-speed cutting, drilling, and stamping.
2-Octyl-1-dodecanol can be used as moistening representative, emulsifier as well as antistatic representative in fabric market. It is used as a chemical in the steel deterioration defense market. Its ethoxy sulfates and alkyl sulfates are excellent surfactants.
Just recently, it has been located that vitamin E can additionally inhibit lipid peroxidation in the lens, dilate peripheral blood vessels, enhance blood circulation, and avoid the event and advancement of myopia.
