Molecular Structure

  • Stable alkylated phenol compound
  • Full name 2,6-di-isopropyl phenol

Chemical Properties

  • Weak organic acid
    • pKa of 11
  • The pH of the presenting solution is 6-8.5:
    • At this pH, and at physiological pH (7.4), it is almost entirely (>99%) unionised
    • Therefore has minimal water solubility
