1,4-Butanediol (1,4-B, butylene glycol, or BD) is a thick, colourless liquid which is nearly odorless with a distinct bitter taste. 1,4-Butanediol is used industrially as a solvent and in the manufacture of some types of plastics, elastic fibers and polyurethanes. In organic chemistry, 1,4-butanediol is used for the synthesis of Gamma-butyrolactone(GBL).
1,4-Butanediol, as well as GBL, will dissolve most types of plastic over time.For this reason, it is recommended to only transport and store the drug using a glass container, standard gelatin capsules (not vegetarian), or high-density polyethylene plastic (also known as #2 recycled plastic). To check the type of plastic used on a bottle, one can look at the bottom for a number in the triangle shaped recycling label.
1,4-butanediol (1,4-BD;BDO) description:
1,4-butanediol (1,4-BD) is a colorless, viscous liquid derived from butane by placement of alcohol groups at each end of its molecular chain and is one of four stable isomers of butanediol.the hydroxyl function of each end group of the Butanediol reacts with different mono- and bifunctional reagents: for example with dicarboxylic acids to polyesters, with diisocyanates to polyurethanes, or with phosgene to polycarbonates. 1.4-Butanediol (BDO) is a high-quality intermediate. BDO and its derivatives are widely used for producing plastics, solvents, electronic chemicals and elastic fibers. Additionally BDO is also a building block for the synthesis of polyesterpolyols and polyetherpolyols
1,4-butanediol (1,4-BD;BDO) usage:
butylene glycol is a solvent with good antimicrobial action. It enhances the preservative activity of parabens. Butylene glycol also serves as a humectant and viscosity controller, and to mask odor.
1,4-Butanediol is used to produce polybutyleneterephthalate, a thermoplastic polyester;and in making tetrahydrofuran, butyrolactones,and polymeric plasticizers.
1,4-butanediol (1,4-BD;BDO) Applications:
(1). 1, 4-butanediol is the main material for producing Gamma-butyrolactone(GBL), which is widely used in pesticide, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and other industries due to its ability to produce NMP and their derivatives NVP and PVP etc. High add-ons products.
(2). 1, 4-butanediol is the main raw material for producing THF, which is an important organic solvent. The polymeric compound PTMEG of THF forms the basic material for highly-elastic urethane elastic fiber, which is mainly used for producing high-grade sports wear and swimming suit that requirs high elasticity.
(3). 1, 4-butanediol is an important raw materials for organic and refined. It is the basic material for producing PBT plastics and fiber, and PBT is one of the five most promising engineering plastics.
(4). 1, 4-butanediol is the main material for producing polyurethane artificial leather, polyurethane, elastomer and polyurethane sole glue. Polyurethane elastomer are widely used to manufacture elastic sole, auto solid fire, friction conveying belt and etc.
