Versatic™ Acid 10

Versatic™ Acid 10

Versatic acid 10 (neodecanoic acid) is a synthetic sterically hindered carboxylic acid with a long and highly branched alkyl chemical structure.
Versatic acid 10 structure

Reactive group (highlighted in yellow)

  • Carboxylic acid functionality
  • Low pKa (acid dissociation constant)
  • Non-polar

Bulky group (highlighted in blue)

  • Branched neo structure
  • Hydrophobic
  • Low surface tension

Performance Characteristics

  • High resistance to chemicals
  • High resistance to oxidative compounds
  • High resistance to thermal conditions
  • High level of hydrophobicity
  • High solubility in non-polar solvents and polymers
  • Viscosity modifier
  • Lubricity

Typical Applications

Versatic acid 10 can be used as such for metal extraction or as lubricity additive in diesel. Its major use, however, is as an intermediate to produce other chemicals used in industrial applications.
