Isoamyl Alcohol

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)
