n-Dodecane (NC12), C12H26, is a flammable, colorless liquid with specific gravity 0.749. It occurs in the paraffin fraction of petroleum. Dodecane is released to the environment by wastewater and spills from laboratory and general use of paraffins, petroleum oils, and tars.
n-Dodecane is isolated from the kerosene and gas oil fractions of crude oil by selective adsorption and subsequent desorption to yield mixtures of paraffins that can be separated by fractional distillation.
PACKAGE & STORAGE
Store in a cool, ventilated warehouse.
Keep away from fire and heat.
n-Dodecane should be stored separately from oxidants, reducing agents, halogens, etc., and should not be mixed.
Use explosion-proof lighting and ventilation facilities.
It is forbidden to use mechanical equipment and tools that are prone to sparks.
The storage area should be equipped with leakage emergency treatment equipment and suitable containment materials.
150kg Iron drum, 12 tons in one 20ft container with pallets.
n-Dodecane is used as a solvent and a distillation chaser. It finds application as a diluent for tributyl phosphate (TBP) in reprocessing plants and as a possible surrogate for kerosene-based fuels in jet. It is an active component of scintillator as well as used in lubricants and greases. n-Dodecane may be utilized as an inorganic diluent to form an organic phase together with tri-n-octylamine as an extractant and decanol as an active diluent. Notably, this system can also be employed in the extraction of lactic acid from aqueous solutions.
n-Dodecane can be used as a flavoring agent in food processing.
n-Dodecane has been used in the aviation industry as an alternate for kerosene-based fuels such as Jet-A. It has also been used as a lubricant and additive to lubricants.
n-Dodecane is used as an adhesive and sealants.
