What is 1-Hexadecanol?

1-Hexadecanol is a white crystal, insoluble in water, soluble in ethanol, ether, chloroform, acetone, with a melting point in the range of 321 K~324 K, and a density of 0.818 g/ml at a temperature of 300 K. At 273K, it is a monoclinic crystal structure in a completely crystalline state, namely γ phase, and its unit cell parameters are: particle structure Z=8, space group A2/a, a=8.980 Å, b=4.939 Å, c=87.91 Å, β =122.63° (Valérie Métivaud et al., 2005).

When the temperature rises to 319.4 K, the phase state of 1-hexadecanol changes from a monoclinic crystal structure during heating, from a stable phase to a hexagonal phase, which is similar to the RII phase of n-alkane, but There is no isomorphism between n-alkanol and n-alkane in the known field. The unit cell parameters in this state are: Z=6, R3m, a=4.905 Å, b=4.905 Å, c=133.3 Å , γ=120°.

1-Hexadecanol (HA)-Palmitic acid (PA) phase change material was prepared by vacuum infiltration method, and the result was stable in nature and no exudation occurred after 600 cycles , did not react with the substrate. White crystals with a rose scent. The melting point is 49.6°C, the boiling point is 344°C, 190°C (2.0kPa), the relative density is 0.8176 (20/4°C), and the refractive index is 1.4392 (20°C). Soluble in alcohol, ether, benzene, chloroform, acetone, insoluble in water.

1-Hexadecanol Uses

  1. 1-Hexadecanol is a crucial resources for surfactants, and also is likewise utilized in the prep work of cosmetics and also different other natural chemicals.
  2. 1-Hexadecanol is (GB 2760– 1996) specified as an allowed scent.
  3. 1-Hexadecanol is mainly utilized as detergent, surfactant, lube, pharmaceutical intermediate, perfume and daily chemical raw material, rice paddy insulation representative, logical chemical reagent, and also utilized as gas chromatography stationary fluid, and so on.
  4.  1-Hexadecanol is made use of as analytical reagent, emulsifier and chromatographic fixative, and likewise used in the synthesis of scents and medications.
  5. 1-Hexadecanol is utilized as perfume, emulsifier, gas chromatography stationary fluid (optimum temperature 100 ℃, solvent is acetone) to divide and also evaluate low-boiling oxygenates as well as fatty amines.

1-Hexadecanol Application

1-Hexadecanol can be made use of in every day life primarily as cleaning agents, surfactants, lubricants, pharmaceutical intermediates, spices and daily chemical basic materials, paddy insulation agents, analytical chemical reagents, and gas chromatography. Fixative, etc, suitable for all sort of cosmetics, as a matrix, specifically suitable for cream and also cream; in medication, it can be straight utilized in W/O emulsifier paste, ointment matrix, etc. The raw material of Pingpinga can likewise be utilized as defoamer, dirt and also water moisturizing representative, gas chromatographic fixative (color previous); it can additionally be made use of as basic material for the manufacturing of alcohol, amide as well as sulfonated items as detergent materials; paddy field warmth preservation agent.

1.1-Hexadecanol and ethanol compound system water evaporation inhibitor
The northwest region of my country is dry and less rainy and has a large amount of evaporation. The water storage project has lost a lot of water resources by evaporation. In order to study water resources protection measures in arid areas, the ratio of 1-hexadecanol to ethanol was 1:6, the ultrasonic treatment power was 6 kHz, the time was 25 min, and the water evaporation inhibitor was stopped for 10 s for each treatment 30 s. The effect is the best, and the 24-hour inhibition rate can reach 45.3%. After the inhibitor is applied to the water surface, the oxygen content of the water body is roughly the same as that of the water body under natural conditions, and it will not affect the growth of aquatic animals and plants. The inhibitor is of great significance for reducing the loss of water resources in arid areas, and can bring huge economic and social benefits.

2. Surface modification of spherical nano-silica by 1-hexadecanol
The surface modification of 1-hexadecanol is based on maintaining the original special physical structure skeleton of silica microspheres, so that the surface is changed from densely hydrophilic silanols to hydrophobic alkyl chains, and the surface properties are changed from hydrophilic to hydrophobic. It is hydrophobic and improves the dispersion of silica particles in organic media, which can significantly expand the application range and improve the application effect of nano-silica in organic materials.

3. High and low temperature resistant asphalt of 1-hexadecanol modifier
In recent years, asphalt compositions have been widely used in road paving. With the increasing requirements for road pavements, asphalt roads with excellent strength, flow resistance and wear resistance are required. Therefore, it is necessary to prepare asphalt roads with higher softening point, Asphalt compositions with high mechanical strength, such as elastic modulus, need to be improved with various copolymer modifiers.

The high and low temperature resistant asphalt of 1-hexadecanol modifier is made of base asphalt, styrene-butadiene rubber, powdered sulfur chloride, montmorillonite, linolenic acid, glycerin aqueous solution, and 1-hexadecanol as raw materials. The base asphalt is heated, then linolenic acid and powdered sulfur chloride, styrene-butadiene rubber and montmorillonite are added, the asphalt is modified, and then after high-speed grinding process, the glycerin aqueous solution and 1-hexadecanol modifier are added after uniform dispersion , and further modify its stability. Finally, the product can be obtained after cooling and post-development. The prepared modified asphalt product is not prone to delamination, and has a short processing flow, so it has a good application prospect.

1-Hexadecanol Ecological Information

The manufacturing and also use of 1-hexadecanol as a foam stabilizer in perfumes, cleaning agents, cosmetics, chemical intermediates, cleaning agents as well as pharmaceuticals may result in its release right into the environment through different waste streams. It is made use of to delay the dissipation of water from the tank and growing plants will cause it to be released directly right into the atmosphere. If released right into air, a vapor stress of 6X10-6 mm Hg at 25 ° C indicates that 1-hexadecanol will certainly be present in both the vapor and particle stages in the ambience. Gas-phase 1-hexadecanol will deteriorate in the atmosphere by reaction with photochemically produced hydroxyl radicals; the half-life of this response in air is estimated to be 16 hrs. The particulate stage 1-hexadecanol will certainly be eliminated from the environment by damp or dry deposition. If launched right into dirt, 1-hexadecanol is not anticipated to be mobile based on an estimated Koc of 25,000. Based on the approximated Henry’s Law constant of 4.6X10-2 atm-cu m/mole, volatilization from wet dirt surfaces is anticipated to be a crucial fate procedure. Nevertheless, adsorption to dirt is anticipated to weaken volatilization. Different bioscreening research studies have shown that 1-hexadecanol is eco-friendly under both cardiovascular as well as anaerobic conditions. If launched to the approximated Koc, 1-hexadecanol is expected to adsorb into put on hold solids as well as sediments. Based upon the estimated Henry’s Law constant for this substance, volatilization from the water surface area is expected to be an important fate process. The estimated volatilization half-lives for the version river and also design lake are 23 hrs as well as 12 days, respectively. Nonetheless, volatile columns at the water surface area are anticipated to be deteriorated by adsorption to suspended solids as well as debris in the water. If adsorption is taken into consideration, the estimated volatilization half-life for the design pond is 1.8 years. The observed BCF was 56, showing modest bioconcentrations in water organisms. Hydrolysis is not anticipated to be an essential ecological fate process because this compound does not have practical teams to hydrolyze under ambient problems. In workplaces where 1-hexadecanol is produced or utilized, facial exposure to this substance might result in work exposure to 1-hexadecanol. Monitoring data suggest that the basic population might be revealed to 1-hexadecanol with inhalation of ambient air as well as skin direct exposure to this substance as well as various other consumer products having 1-hexadecanol.
