About Ethylhexanoates

Ethylhexanoate Formula Diagram Ethylhexanoates are charge-neutral coordination complexes derived from 2-ethylhexanoic acid. They serve as useful sources metal ions that are soluble in non-polar organic solvents. Often such complexes are used as catalysts of organic-phase chemical reactions such as the production of many types of polymers. Additionally, thin films of some metal oxides, such as tin oxide and aluminum oxide, can be prepared through chemical vapor deposition of the 2-ethylhexanoate forms of these metals.
