Applications

1-Tetradecanol is used as an ingredient in cosmetics such as cold creams. It is an active intermediate in the chemical synthesis of sulfated alcohol. It is also employed in the fabrication of temperature-regulated drug release system based on phase-change materials. It plays a vital role in filling the hollow interiors of gold nanocages in the fabrication of new theranostic system, which has unique feature of photoacoustic imaging.

Notes

Incompatible with strong oxidizing agents, acid chlorides and acid anhydrides. Store in a cool place.
