1,3-Butadiene
Butadiene (a.k.a. BD, 1,3-Butadiene, Bio-Butadiene) is the simplest conjugated diene and an extremely versatile and important chemical commodity. With its conjugated double bonds, this chemical can undergo several unique reactions (e.g. addition, hydrogenation, oxygenation, Diels-Alder, polymerization) yielding a broad range of important chemicals. 1,2-Butadiene, the other isomeric form of Butadiene, has no significant commercial applications. It is usually a by-product from 1,3-Butadiene production.
The uses and applications of Butadiene may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Butadiene are technical grade (98.0 wt% minimum purity); chemically pure (CP, 99.0 wt% minimum purity); instrument grade (99.4 wt% minimum purity); and research grade (99.8 wt% minimum purity).
