In this study, N,N-dibutyl lauramide (DBLA) has been synthesized and tested as new plasticizer for polyvinyl chloride (PVC), alternative to common toxic phthalate esters. It has been found that DBLA has excellent compatibility with PVC and efficiently reduces its glass transition temperature from 83,5 to -7,7 oC at plasticizer content 30 wt%.
