2-Ethylhexanoic acid is a versatile carboxylic acid that is commonly used in a variety of industrial applications. When reacted with certain metals, it forms salts that are widely used as additives in paint and plasticizer formulations, as well as in the production of paint and lacquer dryers and PVC stabilizers. The esters of 2-Ethylhexanoic acid, particularly those obtained by glycols, tri glycols, and polyethylene glycols, are known for their lubricant properties. They are excellent plasticizers for PVC, nitrocellulose, chlorinated rubber, and polypropylene. These properties make 2-Ethylhexanoic acid a popular choice in producing various chemicals and materials in the industry.
