Production methods:

1. High-pressure hydrogenation: Coconut oil is continuously hydrogenated in a copper-chromium catalyst to obtain C8-C18 mixed alcohols. The glycerol in the oil is hydrogenated to isopropanol and water. Mixed fatty alcohol often pressure evaporation of water and isopropanol, distillation under pressure to cut C8-C10 alcohol, C12-C14 alcohol and C16-C18 alcohol.

2. Esterification and hydrogenation method coconut oil in the presence of sulfuric acid and methanol transesterification reaction occurs, generating methyl laurate and glycerol, catalytic hydrogenation, distillation, get.


1. Tetradecanol is a special fragrance of daily chemical fragrance modifier used to add wax scent in addition to it is also an emulsifier, surfactant and thickening agent, so the compound is actually the spice industry and the daily chemical industry related raw materials.

2. It is used as the main raw material for the production of sodium tetradecyl polyoxyethylene ether succinate monosulfate and sodium tetradecyl polyoxypropylene ether succinate monosulfate.

3. Used in the manufacture of tetradecyl mercaptan and detergent.

4. It can be used as raw material for organic synthesis and surfactant.

5. It can also be used as cream softener.
