Dioctyl Adipate is an organic chemical, and appears as a colourless, oily liquid with an extremely faint odour. It has the chemical formula CH2CH2CO2C8H17 and is typically used as a plasticiser. It mixes well with most organic solvents and works seamlessly with other monomeric plasticizers in PVC. However, it remains insoluble in water. DOA is an ester formed by combining adipic acid with 2-ethyl hexanol. It has low viscosity, ease of processing, and a prolonged shelf life.
