Esters Introduction

According to a basic definition, an ester can be understood as a chemical compound that is derived from an organic or inorganic acid in which at least hydroxyl (-OH) is substituted by an alkyl (-O-) group. To put it in easier terms, esters are the class of chemical compounds which are developed by bonding of an alcohol class with a class of organic acids, by losing water molecules. Moreover, esters are also generally obtained from carboxylic acids. It is also likely to be procured from the reaction of acid anhydride or acid halides with alcohols or by the reaction of salts of carboxylic acids with alkyl halides.

Other than that, there is another term called ‘Esterification’. Which refers to the process or a basic term for a chemical reaction, in which the two reactants (acid and the alcohol) develop an ester as the final reaction product. In present times, esters are witnessing high demand from the lubricant industry, as they fraternize with metal surfaces and decrease the amount of metal-to-metal contact throughout the sliding motion. Notably, structural factors that affect lubricity comprise the amount of branching, the chain length, and the location of linkages within the molecule.

Growing Demand for High Performance Lubricants from Industrial Sector

Oil and lubricants are few of the most prominent elements of this growing modern industrial sector all over the globe. Significant development in the industrial sector supported by growth in the economy especially in the developing nations has led to the upsurge development of manufacturing along with the industrial sector. Increasing automation in the industrial sector has elevated the adoption of complex machine, tools and equipment. Usage of advance technologies and machines is augmenting the output of several industries. Advancement in the technology and increasing adoption of modern age machinery are driving the demand for high performance lubricants. The demand for industrial lubricants is estimated to grow with a growth rate of 3 to 3.5% in the coming years. Esters are used in the manufacturing of lubricants. Growing demand for industrial lubricants all over the globe is anticipated to bolster the consumption of esters over the forecast period.
