CITROFOL®AI acetyltriethyl citrate, C14H22O8, a citrate ester, was initially used as a plasticizer in polymers such as polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and cellulose derivates. Still, its usefulness has grown into multiple applications as the demand for more healthy and environmentally-friendly materials accelerates.
Triethyl citrates offer an excellent alternative for plasticizer products currently under scrutiny — phthalates and adipates — and can replace them in cosmetics, pharmaceutical coatings, food-contact films and plastic articles.
