Butanol 99.4%

Normal butanol, also known as n-butanol or 1-butanol, is a four-carbon alcohol that is commonly used as a solvent, chemical intermediate, and fuel. Its chemical formula is C4H10O, and it is an isomer of other butanols, including isobutanol, sec-butanol, and tert-butanol. The term “normal” in the name refers to the fact that the butyl group (C4H9) is attached to the primary carbon atom (the one with only one other carbon atom attached to it) of the alcohol functional group.



Normal butanol has a variety of industrial and commercial applications, some of which include:

Solvent: Normal butanol is an effective solvent for many organic compounds, including resins, oils, and waxes. It is used in the production of coatings, inks, and adhesives.
Chemical intermediate: Normal butanol is used as a chemical intermediate in the production of various chemicals, including butyl acrylate, butyl acetate, and glycol ethers.
Fuel: Normal butanol can be used as a biofuel, either alone or in combination with gasoline, diesel, or other fuels. It has a high energy content and can be blended with gasoline to reduce emissions.
Extraction agent: Normal butanol is used as an extraction agent in the purification of antibiotics, hormones, and other pharmaceuticals.
Cleaning agent: Normal butanol is used as a cleaning agent in industrial and household settings.
Flavors and fragrances: Normal butanol is used as a flavor and fragrance ingredient in the food and cosmetics industries.

Safety Guidelines

Normal butanol is a flammable liquid with potential health hazards, so it is essential to take appropriate precautions when using it. Here are some precautions to observe:
  1. Flammability: Normal butanol is highly flammable, so keep it away from heat, sparks, open flames, and other ignition sources.
  2. Ventilation: Use normal butanol in a well-ventilated area or with proper exhaust systems to prevent the accumulation of vapor or fumes, which can be dangerous.
  3. Skin and eye contact: Normal butanol can irritate the skin and eyes, so wear protective clothing, gloves, and goggles when handling it. In case of skin or eye contact, rinse immediately with plenty of water and seek medical attention if necessary.
  4. Inhalation: Normal butanol vapors can cause dizziness, headaches, and other health problems when inhaled. Avoid breathing in vapors and use respiratory protection when necessary.
  5. Storage: Store normal butanol in a cool, dry place away from heat, flames, and other sources of ignition.
  6. Handling: Handle normal butanol with care and use appropriate equipment, such as safety containers and pumps, to prevent spills and leaks.
Disposal: Dispose of normal butanol and its containers properly, following local regulations and guidelines.
