Factsheet: ExxonMobil NDA Prime: Your better alternative to 2-ethylhexanoic acid
The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) has reclassified 2-Ethylhexanoic acid (2-EHA) and most of its salts as Reprotoxic Category 1B. The global industry is adapting to this reclassification by using neodecanoic acid (NDA), since it has a more advantageous classification and labeling profile, and is a safe-to-use replacement for 2-EHA. ExxonMobil offers NDA Prime, a neodecanoic carboxylic acid with a long and highly branched alkyl chemical structure. ExxonMobil NDA Prime offers attributes that make it a better alternative to 2-EHA than offerings from closest competitors.
