Hexamoll DINCH is of interest as an alternative for phthalate plasticizers, which are implicated as endocrine disruptors.
Hexamoll DINCH can be produced by the catalytic hydrogenation of diisononyl phthalate. Alternatively it can be prepared by Diels-Alder reaction of a diisononyl maleate with 1,3-butadiene followed by hydrogenation. In the case of the catalytic hydrogenation the aromatic, planar part of the diisononyl phthalate is transformed to a cyclohexane ring. Commercial DINCH consists of 90% of the cis and 10% of the trans (chiral) isomers.
BASF sells DINCH under the tradename of Hexamoll DINCH.
In February 2009, Mattel and Learning Curve confirmed that they were substituting phthalates with Hexamoll DINCH and citrate-based plasticizers.
