1.4-Butanediol (BDO)


1.4-Butanediol (BDO) Description:

BDO must keep its temperature not lower than 20℃ during storage and transportation, which can avoid crystallization and facilitate loading and unloading. 1.4-Butanediol (BDO) is a colorless viscous flammable liquid with chemical formula C4H10O2, miscible with water, soluble in methanol, ethanol and acetone, slightly soluble in ether.

1.4-Butanediol Instruction:

1,4-Butanediol (also known as 1,4-B, BDO, BD or 1,4-BD) is an inhibitor substance and a prodrug of GHB. BDO is a viscous, colorless liquid with a distinctly bitter taste. BDO is used as a recreational anesthetic with effects similar to those of alcohol and GHB. BDO has been reported that 1 ml of 1,4-butanediol is roughly equivalent to 1 gram of GHB.

1,4-Butanediol is used industrially as a solvent and in the manufacture of certain types of plastics, elastic fibers and polyurethanes. In organic chemistry, BDO is used in the synthesis of gamma-butyrolactone (GBL).

1,4-Butanediol as well as GBL will dissolve most types of plastics over a period of time. For this reason, BDO is recommended that only glass containers, standard gelatin capsules (for meat) or HDPE plastic (also known as #2 recycled plastic) be used to transport and store medications. To check the type of plastic used on the bottle, look for a number in the triangular recycling label at the bottom.

1,4-Butanediol Characteristics:

1,4-Butanediol is classified as a subclass of alcoholic compounds called diols. Diols are named for the two alcohol (OH-) substituents in their structure. 1,4-Butanediol consists of a butane chain consisting of four carbon groups, with one alcohol group at each terminal carbon of the chain. 1,4-Butanediol is named for these alcohol substituents located at R1 and R4. These alcohol substituents make 1,4-butanediol a polar liquid, which explains its good solubility in water.

Physically, BDO is a hygroscopic, colorless, oily liquid with a faint characteristic odor. Unlike GHB, 1,4-butanediol has a distinctive odor that has been described as offensive, plastic-like and chemical.
