Buthylaldehyde is a 4-carbon aldehyde that is utilised as a building block in organic synthesis downstream processes to make various products such as n-butanol, 2-ethylhexanol, 2-ethylhexanoic acid, trimethylolpropane, and polyvinyl buthylal. Butyraldehyde is used in the production of alcohols, paints and lacquers, plant protection goods, insecticides, odorizing agents, oil soluble resins, and polymers. It is also utilised as an intermediary in the production of pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, antioxidants, textile auxiliaries, perfumes, tastes, and a variety of additives used in a variety of industries, including acids, amines, and esters.
Furthermore, it is an important raw material in the production of films used in the manufacture of safety glass. Butyraldehyde is primarily used by firms that manufacture rubber accelerators, synthetic resins, plasticizers, solvents, and high molecular weight polymers.
