Nonene, also known as propylene trimer, is a branched olefin produced by the oligomerisation of propylene. Nonene is most widely used as a chemical intermediate to produce oxo-alcohols, surfactants, resins, coatings, antioxidants, additives for lubricants, plastics and rubbers.
Janex is the leading independent global distributor of nonene. We generally supply either in parcel tankers or in iso-tanks.
Nonene: CAS 27215-95-8 / EC: 68526-55-6 EC 97593-01-6
Propylene is oligomerised by catalytic olefin condensation to produce a higher olefin liquid mixture called polygas which is then separated by distillation.
Several acid catalysts can be used including solid phosphoric acid (SPA) and zeolites.
Nonene is used as a building block in the production of a number of chemical intermediate materials including:
- Di-nonyl naphthalene
- Neodecanoic acid and its esters
- Nonenyl succinic anhydride
- Nonylated diphenylamine
- Nonyl mercaptan
- Nonylphenol and ethoxylates
