Propanal, Propylaldehyde, Methylacet aldehyde, Propionic aldehyde
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.
1. Propionaldehyde is mainly used to produce intermediates such as n-propanol, propionic acid, trimethylolethane, propionaldoxime, and further production of alkyd resins, pesticides, herbicides, pesticides, and drugs.
2. As a chain terminator for ethylene polymerization
3. As antifreeze agents, lubricants, dehydrating agents, etc.
4. Propionaldehyde is used in the manufacture of plastics, in the synthesis of rubber chemicals, and as a disinfectant and preservative.
