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.

American Elements manufactures multiple forms of 2-Ethylhexanoate compounds including solutions, nanopowders, submicron, and -325 mesh powders, and high surface area materials with particle distribution and particle size controlled and certified. We also produce larger -40 mesh, -100 mesh, -200 mesh range sizes and <0.5 mm, 2 mm, 5 mm and other sizes of shot, granules, lump, flake and pieces. Purities include 99%, 99.9%, 99.99%, 99.999% and 99.9999% (2N, 3N, 4N, 5N and 6N).

American Elements maintains industrial scale production for all its ethylhexanoate products and will execute Non-Disclosure or Confidentiality Agreements to protect customer know-how.
