CAS 110-63-4 1,4-Butanediol BDO

Availability: In Stock

1,4-Butanediol (1,4-BDO) is a colorless, viscous liquid derived from butane by placing an alcohol group at each end of its molecular chain and is one of the four stable forms of butanediol. one of the isomers. Hydroxyl functional groups at each end group Butanediol reacts with different monofunctional and bifunctional reagents, and 1.4-butanediol (BDO) is an excellent intermediate. BDO and its derivatives are widely used in the production of plastics, solvents, electronic chemicals and elastic fibers.

CAS 110-63-4 1,4-Butanediol BDO Products Usage

  1. 1,4-Butanediol Bdo and its derivatives is used in a broad spectrum of applications in the chemical industry; amongst others in the manufacturing of technical plastics, polyurethanes, solvents, electronic chemicals and elastic fibres.
  2. 1,4-Butanediol Bdo is used in the synthesis of epothilones, a new class of cancer drugs. Also used in the stereoselective synthesis of (-)-Brevisamide.
  3. 1,4-Butanediol’s largest use is within tetrahydrofuran (THF) production, used to make polytetramethylene ether glycol, which goes mainly into spandex fibers, urethane elastomers, and copolyester ethers.
  4. It is commonly used as a solvent in the chemical industry to manufacture gamma-butyrolactone and elastic fibers like spandex.
  5. It is used as a cross-linking agent for thermoplastic urethanes, polyester plasticizers, paints and coatings.
  6. It undergoes dehydration in the presence of phosphoric acid yielded teterahydrofuran, which is an important solvent used for various applications.
  7. It acts an intermediate and is used to manufacture polytetramethylene ether glycol (PTMEG), polybutylene terephthalate (PBT) and polyurethane (PU).
  8. It finds application as an industrial cleaner and a glue remover.
  9. 1,4-butanediol is also used as a plasticiser (e.g. in polyesters and cellulosics), as a carrier solvent in printing ink, a cleaning agent, an adhesive (in leather, plastics, polyester laminates and polyurethane footwear), in agricultural and veterinary chemicals and in coatings (in paints, varnishes and films).
