1,2-Octanediol was used as organic modifier to improve the HPLC separation of organic acids and bases. It was also used in preparation of halohydrin palmitates. It is useful for treating head louse infestation clinically. It is also used in coating materials, slurries, paper mills and water circulation systems for the effective preservation against bacteria and fungi. It is used as an emollient, humectant, and wetting agent in cosmetic and skin care products
