Dodecyl Succinic Anhydride
n-DDSA is an extremely effective corrosion inhibitor for use in lubricating oil, hydraulic fluids, turbine oil, diesel fuel and gasoline.
Used to increase viscosity profiles in lubricant formulations.Cross-linking curing agent for epoxy resins. Alkyd resin modifier.
n-DDSA can be used as a building block in the preparation of specialist ester, amide or imide products.
When n-DDSA is reacted with butanol to form the corresponding dibutyl ester, the resulting product is found to be a far more effective plasticizing agent than its more common counterparts such as Dibutyl or Dimethyl Phthalate.
