N-Butylene Oxide 1,2 Market: Introduction

N-Butylene Oxide 1,2 is an organic compound with ethereal odor. N- Butylene Oxide 1,2 is also known as 1,2-Epoxybutane, α-Butylene oxide, 1,2-Buteneoxide and 1,2-Butyleneoxide. It is flammable liquid and is soluble in water. N-butylene oxide 1,2 is clear colorless volatile liquid. N-butylene oxide 1,2 is a chiral epoxide synthesized through oxidation of 1-butene. The two main manufacturing processes of N-butylene oxide 1,2 are direct oxidation process and chlorohydrin process. In the direct oxidation process comprises catalytic oxidation of butylene to butylene oxide. And in the chlorohydrin process, butylene is reacted with chlorine in presence of water which is followed by dehydrochlorination with lime or caustic to form salt and butylene oxide. Generally, chlorohydrin process is more widely used. N-butylene oxide 1,2 is used for different applications in various industries. N-butylene oxide is widely is used as chemical intermediate or chemical reagent for the synthesis of butylene glycol and their derivatives. It is also used as non-ionic surfactant in textiles and dyeing auxiliaries. It is used as an additive for fuel and lubricants and as de-emulsifier in oil & gas industry. N-butylene oxide 1,2 is also used as a stabilizer for halogenated solvents and as a solvent for polymer & resin processing. N-butylene oxide 1,2 is flammable compound and is slightly toxic, owing to which there are exposure limits are being imposed on N-butylene oxide 1,2 by number of organizations.
