Adipates

Alcohols in the C8 to C10 range can be esterified with adipic acid to produce a range of adipate plasticisers (US: plasticizers). For example, esterification of 2-ethylhexanol with adipic acid yields Di-2-ethylhexyl adipate (DEHA), also known as di-octyl adipate (DOA). Other common adipates include DINA, DIDA and DTDA. In PVC applications, adipates are often used in blends with for example, phthalates, to improve low temperature properties and plastisol rheology in applications such as roofing membranes and wire and cable. In plastisols, adipates provide low viscosity.
