Higher olefins are reactive intermediates used to manufacture products used in lube oil additives, surfactants, agricultural chemicals, coatings and corrosion inhibitors. ExxonMobil Chemical also uses them as feedstocks for alcohols, plasticizers and neodecanoic acids.

We market a range of higher olefins globally: e.g., nonene (C9) and propylene tetramer (dodecene) (C12).

Following are typical applications for these grades.

Alkyl phenols

Nonylphenol: surfactants and others
Dodecylphenol: lube additives

Dodecyl mercaptan
Polymerization chain regulators

Antioxidants, lube additives
