Epoxidized Soybean Oil

Product Name: Epoxidized Soybean Oil

CAS Number: 8013-07-8

Catalog Number: ACM8013078

Appearance: Light Yellow Transparent Liquid

Main Application: Polymer Plasticizer and Stabilizer


Epoxidized soybean oil is a bio-based product obtained by the epoxidation of high iodine value unsaturated soybean oil with hydrogen peroxide and an organic acid (such as acetic acid or formic acid). It has high chemical reactivity and is resistant to migration, volatilization and extraction. Meanwhile, it has received increasing attention as a green epoxy resin utilizing reactive epoxy groups for monomer synthesis and polymer preparation due to its low cost, low toxicity and high yield. Epoxidized soybean oil has great potential for application in industrial processes and is currently used mainly as a green plasticizer and stabilizer for many plastics. Alfa Chemistry offers high quality epoxidized soybean oil, which is soluble in most organic solvents, has minimal volatility, good compatibility with resins and high plasticizing efficiency. This product is non-toxic and environmentally friendly, making it the first choice for sustainable and environmentally friendly formulations.

The epoxidized soybean oil supplied by Alfa Chemistry offers the following key advantages:

  • It has high plasticizing efficiency and is environmentally friendly and non-toxic.
  • It is resistant to light, heat, aging, and impact, and does not evaporate at a processing temperature of 300 °C.
  • It is an ester with lubricating properties that reduce the use of lubricants in the original formulation.


Epoxidized soybean oil is mainly used as an additive (plasticizer or stabilizer) in plastics, adhesives and coatings. It is also used as a pigment dispersant, chemical intermediate, as well as a lubricant and cutting oil. In addition, it acts as an acid scavenger for soy-based inks, agrochemicals and pesticides.
