ExxonMobil™ neo acids

ExxonMobil™ neo acids are aliphatic carboxylic acids, in which the carboxylic group is attached to a quaternary carbon. This highly branched structure confers very specific properties to the products and their derivatives.

Neo acids are used by ExxonMobil’s customers to produce a range of chemicals useful in metal salts, chlorides, peroxides, as polymerization initiators, anticorrosion agents in metalworking fluids.
