General description

We are committed to bringing you Greener Alternative Products, which adhere to one or more of The 12 Principles of Greener Chemistry. This product is 100% biorenewable and thus aligns with "Safer Solvents and Auxiliaries" and "Use of Renewable Feedstocks". Click here for more information.
This ACS grade 1-Butanol is a drop-in replacement for traditional 1-Butanol applications. Made from 100% renewable carbon (verified through C14 ASTM D6866-16 testing) and produced in an environmentally-friendly way which reduces the carbon footprint of production and reduces reliance on fossil-fuels.
It is also free from many contaminants that are present in petroleum derived 1-Butanol, such as isobutanol and aldehydes.

Application

Drop-in replacement for all 1-Butanol applications. Does not affect change in procedure or equipment.

1-Butanol may be used in applications such as:
  • Extraction and purification of compounds
  • Solvent in chemical synthesis
  • Intermediate in polymer synthesis
  • Adhesives and sealants formulation
  • Coatings

Features and Benefits

  • ASTM D6866 - Standard Test Methods for Determining the Biobased Content
  • Renewable Carbon Content – ≥99.9%
  • Made from Renewable Resource
  • Replacement for Petroleum-based 1-Butanol
