Information @ a Glance

Contents on the CD Rom

  • Octanol is a straight chain fatty alcohol with eight carbon atoms and the molecular formula CH3(CH2)7OH.
  • Although the term octanol usually refers exclusively to the primary alcohol 1-octanol, there are other less common isomers of octanol such as the secondary alcohols 2-octanol, 3-octanol and 4-octanol.
  • Octanol occurs naturally in the form of esters in some essential oils.
  •  The primary use of octanol is in the manufacture of various esters (both synthetic and naturally occurring), such as octyl acetate, which are used in perfumery and flavors.
  • Other uses include experimental medical applications utilizing octanol to control Essential Tremor and other types of involuntary neurological tremors.
  • Octanol is produced industrially by the oligomerization of ethylene using triethylaluminium followed by oxidation of the alkylaluminium products.
  • Octanol and water are immiscible. The distribution of a compound between water and octanol is used to calculate the partition coefficient 'P' of that molecule .
  • Water/ octanol partitioning is a good approximation of the partitioning between the cytosol and lipid membranes of living systems.
  • Octanol is a toxic and flammable product.
  • At heating over 75 ºC, octanol vapors give explosive mixtures with air.
  • Octanol vapors produce eyes and skin irritation, dizziness and headaches.
  • Many dermal absorption models consider the stratum corneum/ water partition coefficient to be well approximated by a function of the water/ octanol partition coefficient of the form.
