DI-C12-13 alkyl adipate, is chemically a mixture of different, synthetically produced di-esters (DI = acroynm for the double orchestra) of C12-13 aliphatic alcohols(alkanols) and adipic acid. The C numbering "C n-nx" preceding the ester designation (alkyl adipate) indicates the number or range of alkyl (carbon) chain lengths. In the di-ester "DI-C12-13 alkyl adipate" the alkyl chain length consists of 12-13 C atoms.
DI-C12-13 alkyl adipate is used as an emollient in cosmetic products.
