BDO Description:

1.4-Butanediol (BDO) is used industrially as a solvent and in the manufacture of certain types of plastics, elastic fibers and polyurethanes. In organic chemistry, 1.4-butanediol is used in the synthesis of gamma-butyrolactone (GBL). In the presence of phosphoric acid and high temperatures, 1.4-Butanediol dehydrates into the important solvent tetrahydrofuran. At about 200°C, in the presence of a soluble ruthenium catalyst, the diol undergoes a dehydrogenation reaction to form butyrolactone. BDO is used to synthesize 1,4-butanediol diglycidyl ether, which is then used as an epoxy resin diluent.


1.4-Butanediol Instruction:

1,4-Butanediol is an important organic chemical and fine chemical raw material, which can produce many derivatives, such as THF, PTMEG, GBL, etc. 1.4-Butanediol and its derivatives can be widely used in PBT plastics, spandex, polyurethane, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and other fields.

1.4-Butanediol Packaging and Storage:

Packed in aluminum barrels, stainless steel barrels, galvanized iron barrels or plastic barrels, or stored and transported in tanker trucks according to the regulations of flammable and toxic substances. Because its melting point is as high as 20℃, the tanker should be equipped with heating pipes.

1.4-Butanediol Applications:

1.4-Butanediol is mainly used in the manufacture of tetrahydrofuran, Y-butyrolactone, polyurethane and the thermoplastic engineering plastic PBT resin. 1.4-Butanediol is also used in the preparation of N-methylpyrrolidone, N-vinylpyrrolidone and other pyrrolidone derivatives. 1.4-Butanediol is also used in the preparation of vitamin B6, insecticides, herbicides and as a solvent for many processes, plasticizers, lubricants, humidifiers, softeners, adhesives and whitening agents for the electroplating industry.

1.4-Butanediol Chemistry:

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 an alcohol group on 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, 1,4-Butanediol is a hygroscopic, colorless, oily liquid with a faint characteristic odor. Unlike GHB, 1,4-butanediol has a distinctive odor, described as offensive, plastic-like and chemical.
