Chromium(III) 2-ethylhexanoate, C24H45CrO6, is a salt that is often used in academic laboratory environments, with little large-scale industrial application.[2][3] It is usually supplied dissolved in mineral spirits.

Structure[edit]

The C24H45CrO6 molecule contains one atom of chromium, around which three ethylhexanoate ligands are arranged. Each ligand binds to the central atom with both oxygen atoms, similar to the bonding in other organometallic chromium compounds.
