Isoprene (a.k.a. 2-Methyl-1,3-Butadiene) is an organic compound, in the hydrocarbon class. It is a colorless volatile liquid with aromatic odor. Isoprene is found naturally in many plants and animals (humans included), and the isoprene’s polymers are the main component in natural rubber. The first uses of isoprene were in the 1940s in the USA and it became extensively commercialized in the 1960s. Currently, around 800000 metric tons are produced annually and most of it is used in the production of a synthetic version of natural rubber.
