[134 Pages] Oxo alcohols are prepared by reacting olefins with syngas (hydroformulation reaction) under low pressure in presence of rhodium catalyst. The resultant aldehyde is hydrogenated to give Oxo-alcohols. Various olefins such as ethylene, propylene, acetylene can be used as raw materials for preparation of different kinds of Oxo-alcohols.

Asia-Pacific – The biggest market of Oxo alcohols

Oxo alcohols are prepared from a two-step process. First step is to convert olefins to alcohols by reaction with syn gas (carbon monoxide & hydrogen) followed by hydrogenation of the resultant aldehyde. In the first step, hydroformylation reaction is carried out under low pressure in the presence of rhodium catalyst (LP Oxo process). For example, ethylene may be hydro formulated to produce normal-butyraldehyde and iso-butyraldehyde which are hydrogenated to produce n-butanol and iso-butanol. The major applications of Oxo alcohols are plasticizers, paints, coatings & adhesives, lubricant additives, and chemical intermediates.

Plasticizers – The largest consumer of Oxo alcohols

2-ethylhexanol (2-EH) and n-butanol are the largest consumed type of Oxo-Alcohols accounting for over 70% of the production. The major applications of Oxo alcohols are plasticizers, paints, coatings & adhesives, lubricant additives, and chemical intermediates. The major end-user industries where Oxo-alcohols are consumed are Acrylates, Glycol Ethers, Acetate, Lube, Resins, Solvents, Plasticizers, and others.

China and the U.S. are at forefront of Oxo alcohols consumption, while Italy, Japan, and the Germany are other key markets for Oxo alcohols consumption. Increase in the consumption of Oxo alcohols for refrigeration, chemical processing and transportation has been observed in Asia-Pacific due to continued industrialization and rise in the manufacturing sector of the region.
