2-Ethylhexylamine (2-EHA), a primary C8 monoalkylamine with a
branched carbon backbone, is a versatile intermediate with a
variety of applications.
The raw material for 2-EHA is 2-Ethylhexanol, an oxo alcohol based
on Propene (steamcracker C3 value chain).
2-EHA is used to produce fuel markers and fuel additives, tencides
and detergents, coatings and paints additives and life science
chemicals (pharmaceuticals and crop protection chemicals).
2-Ethyl-hexylamine is used as an intermediate to manufacture agricultural chemicals,
rubber chemicals, pharmaceuticals, surfactants, polymerization
auxiliaries, plastic additives, dyes, insecticides, flotation
agents, corrosion inhibitors, paint additives, detergents, fuel
additives, and lubricant additives.
