About 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.
Chemical Formula. C4H6
Uses. Manufacture of synthetic rubber, primarily styrene-butadiene rubber (SBR), butadiene rubber (BR), nitrile rubber (NBR), and chloroprene rubber (CR). To a lesser extent, Butadiene is also used in the production of: adiponitrile, a nylon intermediate, anthraquinone, sulfolane solvent and in the synthesis of cycloalkanes and cycloalkenes, among others.
- Co-product of steam cracking for ethylene production
- Butane/butenes (dehydrogenation)
- Raw sugar/glucose (fermentation)
- Ethanol (2-stage reaction process via acetaldehyde)
- Crude C4s stream (extraction)

Derivatives. Styrene-butadiene rubber, butadiene rubber , nitrile rubber , chloroprene rubber.
Methodology. The chemicals pricing data Intratec provides its customers with is obtained from the collection/refining of foreign trade data officially reported by the respective countries. Usually, such information is reported by governmental agencies and/or institutions related to foreign trade, or by statistical surveys conducted by countries/organizations.
