Propionaldehyde (a.k.a. Propanal) (a.k.a propanal) is a low-boiling, colorless, flammable liquid with a sharp, suffocating odor. It is found in vegetables such as onions, in cheese and other dairy products, and as an active ingredient in coffee beans, contributing to the aroma of coffee. Propionaldehyde is highly reactive, and is employed primarily as a chemical intermediate to prepare C3 and C6 compounds. It is generally produced by hydroformylation of ethylene. It is completely miscible with organic solvents such as alcohols, ether, and benzene, while its solubility in water decreases at elevated temperature.
