1,5-Cyclooctadiene Market: Introduction

  • 1,5-Cyclooctadiene, also known as COD, is an organic compound with the chemical formula C8H12.  There exist several other organic compounds, in which 1,5-cyclooctadiene acts as a parent compound. 1,5-Cyclooctadiene is an isomer of a cycloalkane, which has an eight-membered ring and two double bonds.
  • 1,5-Cyclooctadiene is available as colorless liquid with aromatic odor, especially doubly unsaturated cyclic hydrocarbon COD. It works as a ligand in organometallic chemistry.
  • 1,5-Cyclooctadiene is prepared from the process of dimerization of butadiene. In this process, nickel is used as a catalyst, while vinyl cyclohexene is a co-product of the process.
  • 1,5-Cyclooctadiene is widely used in applications such as specialty chemicals, solvents, catalyst ligands, elastomers, chemical intermediates for cosmetics, fragrances, flavors, and flame retardants

Key Drivers of Global 1,5-Cyclooctadiene Market

  • Increasing use of 1,5-cyclooctadiene in various cosmetic applications including skin care, hair care, personal care products and fragrances is expected to drive the global 1,5-cyclooctadiene market during the forecast period. 1,5-cyclooctadiene is a preferred choice for use in various skin care applications such as anti-aging creams, sunscreens, and baby lotions, as it keeps the skin moisturized and protects it from air pollution. Hence, with growth of the global cosmetics industry, the demand for 1,5-cyclooctadiene is also anticipated to increase during the forecast period.
  • Increasing use of 1,5-cyclooctadiene in the manufacture of elastomers in rubber, automotive, and aircraft industries is anticipated to drive the global 1,5-cyclooctadiene market in the next few years.
