Ethylene oxide (EO)is an important building block for the preparation of a wide variety of EO derivatives. A major part of the ethylene oxide produced by INEOS Oxide is consumed internally for the production of ethylene glycols. Monoethylene glycol (MEG) is the main constituent in PET and polyester fibre production. Ethylene oxide is used as a chemical intermediate for the synthesis of a wide variety of EO derivatives such as surfactants, ethanolamines and glycolethers. Applications for ethylene glycols (MEG/DEG/TEG) include antifreeze, de-icing agents, lubricants, polyester resins and gas drying agents.
Propylene Oxide (PO)
Propylene Oxide (PO)是制备各种各样的PO衍生物的重要构建块。通过INEOS氧化物产生的环氧丙烷的主要部分用于在内部消耗用于生产丙二醇。单丙烯二醇（MPG）是最大的丙二醇，具有MPG US Pharacopeia（USP）也是我们产品系列的重要组成部分。PO主要用作制备其他化学品如聚醚多元醇，丙二醇和特种烷氧基化物的化学中间体。INEOS氧化物的丙二醇单元生产单，二 - 和三丙二醇，以及较小的甘醇量。Po乙二醇可以在各种应用中找到，从而从涂料，油墨和药物的涂料。
Ethanolaminesare one of the most versatile members of the EO derivatives family. They are bifunctional molecules containing both amine and alcohol functional groups and are therefore capable of undergoing reactions at both groups. Many of their various industrial applications rely on these features.
Glycol ethersand their acetate esters combine the solubility characteristics of ethers and alcohols (or esters) as both functional groups are present in the molecule. Not only are they miscible in water and in most common organic solvents, they also combine powerful dissolving characteristics with low volatility.
The alkyl acetate range comprises n-butyl acetate, isobutyl acetate and isopropyl acetate, formed by reacting acetic acid with an alcohol resulting in the corresponding alcohol ester and water. These esters are versatile, oxygenated solvents which are primarily used in paints, coatings and inks formulations. They are also widely used in sealants and adhesives, in pharmaceutical applications, in the textile industry, in cleaning formulations and as extraction solvents.
Oxo products includen-butanol, isobutanol and 2-ethylhexanol.
