1-Hexadecene, also known as 1-cetene, is a long-chain hydrocarbon and an alkene with the molecular formula CH2=CH(CH2)13CH3. It is one of many isomers of hexadecene. Classified as an alpha-olefin, 1-hexadecene is a colorless liquid.[3] [4][5]

1-Hexadecene is used as a surfactant in lubricating fluid, a drilling fluid in the boring and drilling industry, and in paper sizing.[2]

However, the high reactivity of 1-hexadecene means that exposure to air could cause oxidation of its surface layer, forming unwanted impurities. It is stored with the use of tank blanketing, and handled in a dry, inert atmosphere.[4]
