1-Octene acts as a comonomer used in the preparation of polyethylene, especially high-density polyethylene (HDPE) and linear low-density polyethylene(LLDPE) resins. It is also used in organic synthesis, surfactants and plasticizers. Further, it is used in process regulators and viscosity adjustors. In addition to this, it is used in the preparation of linear aldehyde through the oxo synthesis (hydroformylation) to get the nonanal.
