The article reports that steep hikes in domestic prices of oxo-alcohols in China, following large falls in September 2006, have sidelined buyers and sellers, forcing them to again adopt a wait-and-see stance. Oxo-alcohol prices hit 10-year highs in early August because of extremely tight supply. The rapid price hikes left many end users unable to cope.
