How Our Products Are Used

Our agricultural chemical solutions serve a variety of purposes on modern farms.

AdvanSix Allylamine (MALA)


AdvanSix Allylamine (MALA) is a colorless liquid characterized by a pungent ammonia-like odor. It possesses excellent solubility in water, ethanol, benzene, and ethyl acetate. While Allylamine remains stable under recommended storage conditions, it is important to note that it is highly flammable. Allylamine finds versatile applications as a solvent and in organic synthesis. It plays a vital role in the synthesis of various products, including rubber, mercurial diuretics, sedatives, and antiseptics. Furthermore, it contributes to the production of ion-exchange resins, underlining its significance in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries.

AdvanSix Di-n-propylamine (DPA)


AdvanSix Di-n-propylamine (DPA) is a colorless, flammable liquid with an ammonia-like odor. It exhibits solubility in water, ethanol, benzene, and ethyl acetate and maintains stability under recommended storage conditions. DPA serves as a key chemical intermediate and acts as a starting material for the synthesis of herbicidal products, including trifluralin, oryzalin, EPTC, and vernolate. Its role in herbicide production highlights its importance in the agricultural and chemical industries.

AdvanSix Diallylamine (DALA)


AdvanSix Diallylamine (DALA) is a colorless to yellow, flammable, and corrosive liquid that emits a pungent, ammonia-like odor. While it is soluble in ethanol, benzene, and ethyl acetate, it displays limited solubility in water. Under recommended storage conditions, DALA remains stable. This versatile chemical compound is commonly harnessed in the production of pharmaceuticals, resins, and paper. It serves as a crucial raw material for manufacturing various crop protection products. Furthermore, DALA finds extensive use as a solvent and functions as a corrosion inhibitor, ore flotation agent, and a key component in rubber processing. Its diverse applications make it an essential ingredient across several industries.

AdvanSix Isopropylamine (ΜΙΡΑ)


AdvanSix Isopropylamine (ΜΙΡΑ) is a colorless, flammable, volatile liquid with an ammonia-like odor. It exhibits low solubility in water and maintains stability when stored under recommended conditions. MIPA serves as a fundamental building block in the production of various herbicides and pesticides, including atrazine, bentazon, glyphosate, imazapyr, ametryne, desmetryn, prometryn, pramitol, dipropetryn, propazine, fenamiphos, and iprodione. Moreover, MIPA functions as a regulating agent in the plastics industry and plays a crucial role as an intermediate in the organic synthesis of coating materials, plastics, pesticides, rubber chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and various other applications. Additionally, it finds utility as an additive within the petroleum industry.

AdvanSix N-Ethylmethallylamine (NEMALA)


AdvanSix N-Ethylmethallylamine (NEMALA) is a light yellow, flammable liquid with a pungent, ammonia-like odor. This chemical exhibits partial solubility in water and maintains stability when stored under recommended conditions. It is primarily utilized as an intermediate ingredient in herbicide formulations.

Naxol® Cyclohexanol


Naxol® cyclohexanol is ideal for applications sensitive to oxygen or peroxide. These range from agricultural products and rubber to plasticizers and solvents to flavors and fragarances. Naxol® cyclohexanol has a low toxicity and ecotoxicity profile, and is produced to low moisture standards.

Sulf-N Ammonium Sulfate


AdvanSix Sulf-N® ammonium sulfate (21-0-0-24S) is a high-analysis fertilizer that provides efficient nitrogen and readily-available sulfur to crops. It is available in granular, standard, mid and soluble sizes.
