n-Butanol (also known as Butyl Alcohol and BuOH) is an alcohol applied in the production of butyl acrylates to supply the coatings and adhesives industries. It is also used in plasticizers or directly as a solvent. It is commercially produced from propylene and syngas by chemical synthesis. Butanol may also be produced from renewable sources. In such cases, it may be referred to as Bio-Butanol or Green Butanol.
