Manufacturing Process

Decyl alcohol is produced by high pressure catalytic hydrogenation of decanoic acid. Decanoic acid is sourced from palm kernel oil with abundant chains of long chain fatty acids and esters. The hydrogenation reaction involves catalytic material such as aluminum lithium hydride. The product of the reaction is compounds of fatty alcohol; therefore, the product is required to be purified by fractional distillation to purify decyl alcohol.

Industrial Applications

Decyl alcohol is utilized mainly in industrial applications (lubricant, fuel additives, and plasticizers). The high viscosity properties of decyl alcohol are used to create lubricant. Plasticizer is used as a material additive to adjust material’s hardness. As a fuel source, decyl alcohol provides a clean alternative instead of petrol. Decyl alcohol produce clean combustible fuel with low viscosity.
