What is 1-Octanol?

1-Octanol, also known as n-octanol, is an organic compound that belongs to the alcohol class and its chemical formula is C8H18O. It is a straight-chain alcohol containing a hydrocarbon chain of eight carbon atoms and a hydroxyl (-OH) functional group at one end of the chain. 1-Octanol is usually a colorless to light yellow liquid with a typical alcohol odor. It is soluble in water, but its solubility is lower than other short-chain alcohols and it is more soluble in organic solvents.

1-Octanol Uses

Synthesis of surfactants: 1-Octanol is one of the important raw materials for the synthesis of nonionic surfactants. By reacting with compounds such as ethylene oxide, nonylphenol polyoxyethylene ethers and other products can be produced, which are widely used in washing Agents, emulsifiers, dispersants, wetting agents, etc., to improve the detergency of detergents and performance in hard water.

Solvent: Due to its moderate polarity and good hydrophobicity, 1-Octanol can be used as a solvent for a variety of chemical reactions, especially in organic synthesis that requires moderately polar solvents, such as esterification, halogenation reactions, etc. It is also a commonly used solvent in products such as paints, inks, resins and dyes, helping to adjust product viscosity and improve leveling.

Flavors and fragrances: 1-Octanol has a specific alcohol aroma and can be used as a component of flavors to prepare the fragrances in various perfumes, cosmetics and personal care products, and to add or adjust the floral, fruity or mellow aroma in the products.

Pesticide auxiliaries: In pesticide preparations, 1-Octanol can be used as a cosolvent to enhance the solubility and adhesion of pesticides and promote the distribution of pesticide active ingredients on the surface of plants, thereby improving efficacy and reducing usage.

Plastic and rubber industry: As an additive, 1-Octanol can improve the processing properties of plastic and rubber products, such as acting as a lubricant to reduce friction, improving the efficiency of the extrusion and molding process, or as an anti-fogging agent, antistatic agent, etc.

Biochemical research: In scientific research, 1-Octanol is often used as a model compound to study the permeability of biological membranes, the interaction of liposomes, and as a research tool for cell membrane phase transitions, which helps to understand the interactions between biomolecules. basic principles.

Other special applications: 1-Octanol is also used to prepare specific chemical intermediates, such as the synthesis of alkyd resins, and as an extractant, heat carrier, antifreeze, etc., playing a role in many professional fields.

1-Areas Where Octanol Stands Out in Makeup

  1. Flavor and Fragrance Ingredients: In the cosmetics industry, perhaps the most significant application of 1-Octanol is as a component of flavors and fragrances. It has a mild and mellow aroma, which can provide a soft base fragrance or auxiliary fragrance for perfumes, skin care products, cleansing products, etc., helping to enhance the aroma level and persistence of the products.
  2. Solvents and co-solvents: Although not the solvent of choice, 1-Octanol’s moderate polarity allows it to be used as a co-solvent in some cosmetic formulations to help dissolve certain active ingredients that are not easily soluble in water or oil, thereby improving product uniformity. sex and stability.
  3. Skin feel adjustment: When used in small amounts, 1-Octanol can be used as a skin feel adjuster to affect the feel of cosmetics, such as increasing the smoothness and spreadability of the product, making the product feel more comfortable on the skin.
  4. Preservative auxiliary: Since alcohols have certain antibacterial properties, 1-Octanol may assist the main preservative in some cases to enhance the preservative effect of the formula, but this is not its main purpose.
