1.4-Butanediol Uses


1.4-Butanediol Instruction:

1.4-Butanediol (Butane-1.4-diol) is an organic substance with molecular formula C4H10O2 and molecular weight 90.12. Appearance is colorless or light yellow oily liquid. Flammable, freezing point 20.1℃, refractive index 1.4461. soluble in methanol, ethanol, acetone, slightly soluble in ether. BDO is hygroscopic and has a bitter taste, but slightly sweet in the mouth. Used as solvent and humidifier, also used as plasticizer, drug, polyester resin, polyurethane resin, etc.


1.4-Butanediol Uses:

1.4 Butanediol is an important organic chemical and fine chemical raw material, and is the basic raw material for the production of polybutylene terephthalate (PBT) engineering plastics and PBT fibers; PBT plastics are one of the five most promising engineering plastics.
BDO is the main raw material for the production of tetrahydrofuran, which is an important organic solvent. The polytetramethylene glycol ether (PTMEG) obtained after polymerization is the basic raw material for the production of high-elasticity spandex (Lycra fiber). Spandex is mainly used in the production of high-elastic knitted products, such as advanced sportswear and swimwear.
γ-butyrolactone is a downstream product of 1,4-butanediol, which is the raw material for the production of 2-pyrrolidone and N-methylpyrrolidone, from which a series of high value-added products such as vinylpyrrolidone and polyvinylpyrrolidone are derived, and are widely used in pesticide, pharmaceutical and cosmetic fields.

BDO Potential Health Effects:

Inhalation May be harmful if inhaled. May cause respiratory tract irritation. Vapors may cause drowsiness and dizziness.
Ingestion Harmful if swallowed accidentally. There is information that ingestion of the substance can promote the release of various hormones for a short period of time and is sold as a drug abroad.
The LD50 of 1,4-butanediol is about 1500mg/kg (rat, oral), which is considered to be a less toxic substance, but still significantly higher than many alcohols such as 1,3-butanediol (22,500mg/kg) and 1,2-butanediol (3700mg/kg), which also proves that this substance has a specific mode of action on organisms, for which information is available and can be found on Erowid The information is available and can be consulted on Erowid.
