Pentanols – 99% (Isoamyl Alcohol)
Isoamyl Alcohol (at a minimum purity of 99%), is a mixture of isomers 3-methyl, 1-butanol and 2-methyl , 1-butanol, with a preponderance of the first (aproximately 85%). The raw material used by PETROM in the production of Isoamyl Alcohol is fusel oil, which in turn is a byproduct of the distilling of ethyl alcohol (ethanol).
Applications: The main applications of Isoamyl Alcohol are:
– the manufacturing of paints and varnishes, to produce isoamyl acetate;
– the manufacturing of plasticizers for the production of DIAP (DiisoAmyl phthalate);
– the manufacturing of perfumes, for the recovery of oils and essences;
– the synthesis of fragrances and aromas;
– the production of isoamyl salicylate, applied widely in soaps and cosmetic fragrances;
– the purification of phosphoric acid, acting as an extraction solvent.
– the production of Xanthates (mining industry)

Nonene is an alkene, also called propylene trimer with an average carbon number of nine. It is a branched olefin oligomer produced by polymerisation of propylene.
Nonene is a key building block for major chemical compounds.
Nonene derivated chemicals are used in wire and cable coatings, electrical insulation, automotive interiors and coated fabrics and for Polyvinylchloride (PVC) flexibilisation.
Nonene can be used to produce other chemical intermediates such as alkyl phenols. Those intermediates yield to detergents and cleaners, as well as antioxidants used in crankcase lubricating oils.
Equilex is a leading distributor of Nonene in the world. Feel free to contact us for your supplies in nonene.

Pentamer is a branched olefin produced by the polymerization of propylene. Pentamer is also referred to as propylene pentamer. It is preferred name for branched C15 olefin.
Pentamer is used for solvent applications and or carrier fluids (e.g. drilling fluids) and as a supplement or replacement for tetramer. Other applications are the production of alkylphenols, alkenylsucinnic anhydride, mercaptans, alcohols and for alkylation of benzene. Pentamer can be used as a synthetic base oil, a refrigeration fluid and as an intermediate for further reaction (e.g. sulphonation).
