Global Solketal Market: Introduction

Solketal is also known as isopropylidene glycerin. Solketal is categorized under glycerin and glycerin derivative and has significant potential to be used as additive to improve biodiesel properties. By IUPAC standards, solketal is identified as 4-hydroxymethyl-2,2-dimethyl-1,3-dioxolane. Solketal is a clear, colorless, and odorless liquid, and possess good fluidity at room temperature. Solketal has been widely used for the organic synthesis of mono, di and tri esters and recognized as a green industrial solvent additive in gasoline and biofuels.

Solketal is formed by reacting glycerol and acetone in the presence of an acid which results in the formation of a five membered ring called 1,3-dioxolane, which releases the water molecule to form solketal. There has been rise in demand for solketal as oxygenate fuel additive, as it can be used to reduce the particulate emission and improve the flow properties of the transportation fuels. Solketal has also shown noteworthy demand to improve the oxygen stability and increases the octane number of gasoline and has significantly reduced the gum formation along the vehicle fuel lining.

Global Solketal Market Dynamics

The growing demand for biofuels and biodiesel is expected to create demand for solketal over the forthcoming years. Solketal is found to be soluble in gasoline and also in gasoline with significant proportion of ethanol. Solketal is also being used to increase the octane number of the fuels. The global solketal market has also witnessed growing demand for its use as chemical intermediate to synthesize benzyl solketal ether. With the stringent regulations pertaining to the use of bio fuels and additives, there has been an expected rise in demand for solketal over the coming years.

The global solketal market has faced a number of challenges pertaining to the use of acetone in its synthesis. Though solketal is applied in a number of applications as biofuels, there are controversies surrounding its other constituent i.e. acetone. Glycerol is majorly derived from biological origin but the other feedstock i.e. acetone is being commercially obtained from the petrochemical processes. This may act as a key in factor restraining solketal market growth.
