Anhydrides: chemical intermediates for specialty applications

Anhydrides have a broad range of industrial applications, including epoxy curing, fuel and oil additives, plasticizers, starch modifiers and toner resins. They may be used as intermediates in the preparation of alkyd or unsaturated polyester resins and in chemical reactions.

The Anhydride range

The Anhydride range is developed in close cooperation with customers to provide unique solutions that fit their specific needs. It includes:

  • Dodecenyl Succinic Anhydride (DDSA), C-12 branched
  • Octenyl Succinic Anhydride (OSA), C-8 linear
  • Octadecenyl Succinic Anhydride (ODSA), C-18 linear
  • Undistilled DDSA (DDSA-B)
  • DDSA Residue (DDSA-2B)
  • Hexahydropthalic Anhydride (HHPA)

Anhydride-free acid products

Alkenyl succinic anhydrides can be modified to their free acid versions. These are useful in the fuel additives market as corrosion inhibitors and water removing agents. The range includes:

  • DDSA Free Acid in Aromatic 150
  • DDSA Free Acid in Xylene
  • OSA Free Acid
