Abstract

Dicarboxylate ester has the potential alternative as plasticizer which environmentally friendly in polymeric formulation especially for poly (vinyl chloride) (PVC). Dicarboxylate ester compounds were synthesized via esterification between dicarboxylic acid and 2-ethyl-1-hexanol by using sulfuric acid as catalyst. The effects of reaction parameters were studied by optimizing temperature, mole ratio of reactants, amount of catalyst and reaction to obtain highest ester conversion. The optimum results showed dicarboxylic acid successfully converted to the dicarboxylate ester at parameters; 4 hours; 120°C; catalyst amount: 2% w/w of diacid; and mole ratio: 1:2.5. Functional group analysis was conducted by using ATR-FTIR spectroscopy.
