Isobutylene (High Purity) / Isobutylene / Isobutene

SeperatorIsobutylene (High Purity) / Isobutylene / Isobutene is the branched C4 molecule. Isobutylene (High Purity) / Isobutylene / Isobutene is an olefinic hydrocarbon recovered from petrochemical or refinery manufacturing processes. Isobutylene (High Purity) / Isobutylene / Isobutene is a hydrocarbon of significant industrial importance. It is a four-carbon branched alkene (olefin), one of the four isomers of butylene. At standard temperature and pressure it is a colorless flammable gas.

Chemical Name: 2-Methylpropene
Chemical Family: C4 Chemicals
Other Names:
  • High Purity Isobutylene
  • Isobutylene
  • Isobutene
  • Methylpropene
  • 2-Methylprop-1-ene
Chemical Formula:  C4H8

 

Benefits and Applications

Isobutylene (High Purity) / Isobutylene / Isobutene is used in the production of agrochemicals, alkylated phenols used as antioxidants, lube oil additives, butyl rubber and resins.Alkylation with butane produces isooctane, another fuel additive. Isobutylene (High Purity) / Isobutylene / Isobutene is also used in the production of methacrolein. Polymerization of isobutylene produces butyl rubber (polyisobutylene). Antioxidants such as butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT) and butylated hydroxyanisole (BHA) are produced by Friedel-Crafts Alkylation of phenols using Isobutylene (High Purity) / Isobutylene / Isobutene.
