Description

Propionaldehyde appears as a clear colorless liquid with an overpowering fruity-like odor.Propanal is an aldehyde that consists of ethane bearing a formyl substituent. The parent of the class of propanals.It is an alpha-CH2-containing aldehyde and a member of propanals.  It has a role as an Escherichia coli metabolite. Propionaldehyde is an important raw material for fine chemicals, which is used in the production of synthetic fibers, rubber accelerators and antioxidants, etc.
