The science of helping you succeed
We can collaborate with you to provide insights that help solve your most demanding formulation and end-use application challenges. Our approach can help:
- Identify the appropriate use of surfactants
- Shorten formulation cycles
- Get to the desired solution faster

Exxal™ alcohols for surfactants
We provide surfactant manufacturers with Exxal branched alcohols to synthesize derivatives used in many applications. Known for their high purity, Exxal alcohols exhibit reactivity typical of higher primary alcohols. Their branched structure offers many performance advantages in ethoxylates compared to alcohols with linear (straight-chain) molecules, including:
- Low pour point and less gel phase
- Readily biodegradable per OECD 301F
- Superior wetting power
- Low foaming
- Low aquatic toxicity supporting reduced GHS labeling

Article: Mammalian Toxicity Testing of Semilinear and Branched Alcohol Ethoxylates
It is important to ensure safe use of chemicals such as surfactants. Read the article to learn toxicological data from 59 toxicology studies on alcohol ethoxylates (AE) produced from branched and semilinear alcohols produced by ExxonMobil, with alcohol backbones ranging from C9 to C15.
