Product information
Technical specifications

Butan-1-ol is an alcohol with the formula H3C-(CH2)3-OH. The isomers of this compound are butan-2-ol, methylpropan-1-ol and methylpropan-2-ol. It is classified as a primary alcohol because the hydroxyl group is attached to a primary carbon; and as fusel alcohol by having more than two carbon atoms.

Butan-1-ol occurs naturally as a by-product of the fermentation of sugars and other carbohydrates, and is also present in many foods and beverages. Its use as an artificial flavoring is allowed in the United States for butter, cream, fruit, rum, ice cream, candy, and other products. Despite this, the smell in the organic chemistry labs, where the pure compound is handled, is very intense and noxious and so its use is sometimes avoided to avoid a stuffy and unpleasant feeling. working environment.

It is mainly used as an industrial intermediate, especially for the manufacture of butyl acrylate (which is both an artificial flavoring agent and an industrial solvent). It is a petrochemical made from propylene and is generally used near where it is produced. It is estimated that production in 1997 was 784,000 tons; 575,000 tons in Eastern Europe; and 225,000 tons in Japan
