General description

1,6-hexanediol is a versatile chemical compound commonly used in the polymer industry. It is used as a building block or monomer for the synthesis of various polymers and polymer-based materials. For instance, it can be used in the production of polyesters, polyurethanes, and polyamides, among others. These polymers find applications in a wide range of industries, including automotive, textiles, coatings, adhesives, and sealants.

Application

1,6-Hexanediol can be used for a variety of applications such as:
  • a structure-directing agent for the synthesis of ZSM-5 zeolite
  • a solvent for titanium tetra-isopropoxide to form titanium oxide (TiO2) nanocrystals
  • a phase change material in combination with lauric acid for thermal energy storage applications
1,6-hexanediol can also be used in the synthesis of a specific type of biopolymer called poly(3-hydroxybutyrate-co-4-hydroxybutyrate) (PHB4HB) which is used for some medical applications. It is also used as a component in the formulation of the gel polymer electrolyte. It may act as a crosslinking agent or a plasticizer to facilitate the formation of a stable and conductive gel polymer electrolyte for sodium metal batteries.
