About Pentaerythritol. Pentaerythritol (a.k.a. PER) is an organic compound in the polyol class. It is an odorless white solid, with four hydroxyl groups in its structure, allowing the attachment of four groups (similar or not), and, hence, the synthesis of greatly branched compounds/structures. For this characteristic, pentaerythritol and its derivatives have a wide variety of applications.
Chemical Formula. C5H12O4
Commercial Grades. technical grade (88% monopentaerythritol and 12% dipentaerythritol); nitration grade (minimum 98.7% monopentaerythritol); and chemically pure grade (CP, minimum 98% monopentaerythritol).
Uses. Pentaerythritol is mainly employed as PVC heat co-stabilizer; tail oil esters and olefin antioxidants; fire retardant for paints and plastics; vinyl chloride plasticizer explosive production (mainly the derivative pentaerythritol tetranitrate); paint swelling agent; in the production process of some plastics (mainly intumescent polymers); lubricants manufacturing; urethane coatings; transformer oil; and varnish.
- Acetaldehyde + formaldehyde (poly-addition, followed by a Cannizzaro reaction or an aldol condensation).
