Propylene Oxide
C3H6O
chemical grade (ca. 8% propane) and polymer grade (ca. 0.3% propane).
Propylene Oxide is mainly used in the synthesis of polyether polyols, propylene glycols, and propylene glycol ethers. To a lesser extent, it is used in the production of a broad range of products: surfactants; detergents; fumigant; synthetic lubricants; synthetic elastomers; solvent; modified food starch; food-packaging; adhesives; and defoamer in food-contact paper/paperboard.
