This week, the domestic n-propanol market showed a downward trend. The n-propanol plant of Shandong Dachang was put into operation, and the on-site supply of n-propanol increased. Since the end of last week, the domestic n-propanol market has fluctuated. This week, with the increase of on-site supply, the downstream demand of n-propanol is still dominated by rigid demand, and the effective support on the site is insufficient. The market price of Shandong Dachang n-propanol began to decrease gradually at the beginning of this week (10th). At present, as of 12th, The ex factory price of n-propanol in Shandong is around 8000-8300 yuan / ton, the low-end price is 7900 yuan / ton, the market situation of n-propanol in Nanjing is temporarily stable, the ex factory price of n-propanol is around 9000-9200 yuan / ton, and the high-end price is 9500 yuan / ton.
