Dioctyl Sebacate is an organic compound that appears as an oily, colourless liquid, and is a diester of sebacic acid and 2-ethylhexanol. It is typically used as a plasticizer for PVC, nitrocelluloses, styrene resins, and synthetic rubbers where low-temperature performance is required. DOS is also compliant with FDA CFR 21 for food contact materials. Dioctyl Sebacate can also be used in lubricants to allow more mobility at lower temperatures.
