N-butanol or normal butanol is a primary alcohol with 4-carbon structure and molecular formula C4H9OH. It is a colorless liquid at room temperature. N-butanol is manufactured commercially by oxo synthesis of propylene with syngas, in the presence of catalyst, to give aldehydes. The intermediate aldehydes are further hydrogenated to give n-butanol and iso-butanol as by-products. It is a major feedstock for the industrial manufacturing of various chemicals including butyl acrylate, butyl acetate, glycol ethers, and plasticizers. These chemicals find a wide range of applications in water-based coatings, cosmetics, car care products, lacquers, pharmaceuticals, textiles, etc. N-butanol is also used as a direct solvent in paints, dyes, varnishes, coatings, and for other industrial purposes. Over exposure to n-butanol may cause irritation to human body. Hence, various health organizations are involved in continuously monitoring the exposure levels.

The global market for n-butanol has grown significantly during the past few years and is expected to grow at a more rapid pace in the next five years, mainly driven by the growing demand in the Asia-Pacific region. China consumed around 34.8% READ MORE >
