Ethylene glycol distearate is a crucial additive in the cosmetics market. It can be taken advantage of as a pearlescent representative, conditioning agent and additionally thickener in shampoos, body washes as well as different other washing items. It is manufactured by esterification of ethylene glycol along with stearate. The reaction temperature level of the traditional synthesis process is high, typically between (150-210 ° C). In order to get rid of the water created by the reaction, procedures such as nitrogen passage, decompression or azeotropic dehydration need to be embraced. Because of the high reaction temperature level, the product is seriously carbonized and also has a deep color, so an extra decolorization process is called for. There are studies making use of p-toluenesulfonic acid and also phosphorous acid (molar proportion 1: 1) as composite driver (hereinafter described as composite driver) for esterification, as well as perform experimental research study on the 3 elements of catalyst dose, reaction temperature level as well as reaction time, and also offer A new process for the synthesis of ethylene glycol distearate was developed.

Ethylene Glycol Distearate Application

Ethylene glycol distearate is an excellent pearlescent agent for cosmetics and an important additive in the cosmetics industry. Examples of its applications are as follows:

1) An aloe soap is prepared, which belongs to the field of daily chemicals. Including the following raw materials: amino acid-based surfactants, natural aloe juice, cocamidopropyl sulfobetaine, ethylene glycol distearate, Kathon, silicone oil, titanium dioxide, each component and its content (with Weight fraction grade) is: amino acid surfactant: 25%-50%; cocamidopropyl sulfobetaine: 5%-20%; ethylene glycol distearate: 2%-10%; Kason 10%-20%, silicone oil 2%-8%, titanium dioxide; 0.5%-5%; the rest is water. The preparation steps of the process are simple, and the produced soap uses amino acid surfactant as the main cleaning component, silicone oil and carthone as the disinfecting component, and adds beneficial components such as aloe plant essence, which is good for skin care and beauty, has strong decontamination ability, and excellent disinfection effect The effect is small, no side effects.

2) Prepare an insecticidal and sterilizing lotion, which is composed of acrylic styrene cross-linked polymer, potassium monoalkyl phosphate, cationic guar gum, emulsified silicone oil, potassium hydroxide, ethylene glycol distearate , disodium edetate, benzophenone-4, litsea cubeba essential oil, extract, hydrogenated castor oil and purified water, the steps are: dissolve acrylic styrene crosslinked polymer, monoalkyl Potassium phosphate, disodium edetate, benzophenone-4; dissolving guar gum in purified water, ethylene glycol distearate and emulsified silicone oil; crushing lovage, chuanxiong, scutellaria baicalensis and rutin , extract, concentrate; mix the solution with the extract; Litsea cubeba essential oil, hydrogenated castor oil, emulsify; mix the mixed solution and the emulsion, add purified water to obtain a lotion. The invention has good insecticidal and sterilizing effects, simple and convenient process, and can effectively treat acne, vaginitis and beriberi on human skin caused by mites, fungi and molds.

3) Prepare an anti-rust lubricating oil. The lubricating oil is made of the following raw materials in parts by weight: 100-120 parts of silicone oil, 50-60 parts of liquid paraffin, 2-6 parts of isoprene styrene copolymer, 11-16 parts of petroleum ether, 3 parts of potassium dihydrogen phosphate -7 parts, 1-4 parts of sodium citrate, 1-4 parts of zinc dialkyldithiophosphate, 0.5-1.5 parts of graphite powder and 5-10 parts of antirust additive; the antirust additive is dodecyl Mixture of Sodium Benzene Sulfonate, Sodium Petroleum Sulfonate, Zinc Naphthenate and Macrogol Distearate. The antirust lubricating oil formula of the present invention is reasonable, uses silicone oil and liquid paraffin as base oil, improves the viscosity of lubricating oil by adding isoprene styrene copolymer and sherwood oil, sodium dodecylbenzene sulfonate, petroleum sulfonate The mixture of sodium naphthenate, zinc naphthenate and polyethylene glycol distearate has good antirust performance and can improve the antirust performance of base oil.

4) Prepare a thermally conductive rubber with strong oil resistance, including the following raw materials in parts by weight: 2-8 parts of carbon black, 30-50 parts of nitrile rubber, 20-40 parts of natural rubber, 5-15 parts of ethyl acetate, 0.5-2 parts of Tween 800, 1-5 parts of dioctyl phthalate, 3-8 parts of ethylene glycol distearate, 0.1-0.5 parts of cyclohexyl phosphate, the preparation method of the present invention is simple, The preparation raw materials are easy to obtain, the cost is low, the product performance is stable, and the adaptability is strong. The heat-conducting rubber with strong oil resistance prepared by the present invention greatly improves The oil resistance and thermal conductivity of this product, and the synergistic effect of ethylene glycol distearate and cyclohexyl phosphate, finally greatly improved the oil resistance and thermal conductivity of this product.

Preparation of Ethylene Glycol Distearate

Stearic acid and ethylene glycol generate ethylene glycol distearate under the action of an acidic catalyst:

Add 1.74 mol of stearic acid into the three-necked flask, heat to melt, add 0.0435 mol of catalyst and 1 mol of ethylene glycol under stirring, then control a certain temperature, and discharge the generated water in time through the water separator to prevent the reverse reaction from occurring.
