What is 1-Hexadecanol?

1-Hexadecanol is white crystal, insoluble in water, soluble in ethanol, ether, chloroform, acetone, melting point is in the range of 321 K~324 K, density is 0.818 g/ml at a temperature of 300 K, in At 273K, it is a monoclinic crystal structure in a fully crystalline state, that is, the 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 the heating process, from a stable phase to a hexagonal phase state similar to the RII phase of n-alkanes, but No isomorphism of n-alkanols and n-alkanes has been found in the known field. The unit cell parameters in this state are: Z=6, R3m, a=4.905Å, b=4.905Å, c=133.3Å , γ=120°.

1-Hexadecanol (HA )-Palmitic acid (PA) phase-fixed material was prepared by vacuum impregnation method, and the result was that the property was stable, and no exudation occurred after 600 cycles , did not react with the matrix. White crystals with rose aroma. 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 ethanol, ether, benzene, chloroform, acetone, insoluble in water.

1-Hexadecanol Uses

  1. 1-Hexadecanol is mainly utilized as cleaning agent, surfactant, lubricating substance, pharmaceutical intermediate, seasoning and also everyday chemical basic material, paddy field warm preservation representative, analytical chemical reagent, and also made use of as gas chromatography fixed liquid, and so on .
  2. 1-Hexadecanol is a fragrance that is enabled to be utilized according to (GB2760– 1996). It can be utilized as fragrance, emulsifier, gas chromatography stationary fluid (optimum usage temperature 100 ° C, solvent is acetone) for splitting up and evaluation of low boiling point oxygenated compounds and also Fatty amines. Primarily made use of as logical reagents, emulsifiers and chromatographic fixatives, additionally utilized in the synthesis of flavors as well as drugs

1-Hexadecanol Application

1-Hexadecanol can be utilized in daily life normally as cleaning agent, surfactant, lubricating compound, pharmaceutical intermediate, seasoning and likewise day-to-day chemical raw material, paddy location insulation representative, logical chemical reagent, as well as additionally used as gas chromatography Fixative, and so on, ideal for all kind of cosmetics, as a base, especially appropriate for lotions as well as likewise lotions; in drug, it can be directly used in W/O emulsifier paste, ointment base, and so forth. The raw product of Pingpingjia can furthermore be utilized as defoamer, water and also dirt humectant, gas chromatography fixative (color coupler); it can additionally be made use of as resources for the production of alcohol, amide and likewise sulfonated products as detergent products; paddy area insulation rep.

1.-Hexadecanol in addition to ethanol substance system water evaporation avoidance
Northwest my nation is completely dry in addition to rainless, in addition to the dissipation is large, as well as a big quantity of water resources have actually been dropped by evaporation in water storage room jobs. In order to study water resources protection actions in dry areas, the proportion of 1-hexadecanol to ethanol was 1: 6, the ultrasonic therapy power was 6 kHz, the moment was 25 minutes, along with the water dissipation inhibitor The impact is the most reliable, as well as the 24-hour inhibition cost can get to 45.3%. After the inhibitor is used on the water surface, the oxygen material of the water body is approximately the like that of the water body under natural problems, as well as will definitely not affect the advancement of aquatic pets and also plants. The prepared inhibitor is of fantastic value for decreasing the loss of water sources in arid locations, and additionally can bring considerable economic as well as likewise social benefits.

2.-Hexadecanol Surface Modification of Round Nano-SiO2
On the basis of keeping the original special physical structure of silica microspheres, the area modification of 1-hexadecanol adjustments the surface from mostly protected hydrophilic silicon hydroxyl groups to hydrophobic alkyl chains, as well as also transforms the area buildings from hydrophilic to Hydrophobic enhances the dispersibility of silica fragments in organic media, which can substantially broaden the application array as well as enhance the application result of nano silica in organic products.

3. Reduced and high temperature immune asphalt with 1-hexadecanol modifier
Over the last few years, bituminous structures have actually been extensively used in roadway paving. As the needs for road surface areas are enhancing, asphalt highways with superior endurance, circulation resistance, as well as use resistance are called for. Because of that, it is needed to prepare asphalt roadways with greater conditioning elements, Asphalt structures with high mechanical sturdiness such as adaptable modulus demand to be enhanced with different copolymer modifiers.

The low and heat immune asphalt of 1-hexadecanol modifier is based upon base asphalt, styrene-butadiene rubber, powdered sulfur chloride, montmorillonite, linolenic acid, glycerin liquid choice, along with 1-hexadecanol. Base asphalt is warmed, then include linolenic acid, powdered sulfur chloride, styrene-butadiene rubber in addition to montmorillonite, alter the asphalt, and then undertake a high-speed grinding treatment to spread evenly, then include glycerin fluid service as well as 1-hexadecanol modifier, to a lot more modify its security. Last but not least, the product can be gotten after cooling off and creating in the later phase. The prepared modified asphalt item is not susceptible to delamination, and also the handling blood circulation is short, so it has an outstanding application possibility.

1-Hexadecanol Preparation

It was first gotten by the hydrolysis of spermaceti. Industrially, it can be gotten by decrease of grease or decrease of hexadecanoyl chloride with salt borohydride. Normally all-natural oils are made use of as basic materials to create combined fatty alcohols through esterification and high-pressure hydrogenation, and then to obtain 1-hexadecanol through correction.
