Specifications

Description

Applications
1-Pentanol is used as a key starting material in the production of dichloro-acetic acid pentyl ester, 2-methyltetrahydrofuran, di-n-penyl ether (DNPE), pentyl butyrate and amyl acetate. As a solvent, it is used for coating CDs and DVDs. It has been considered to be a replacement for gasoline and diesel fuels due to its combustion properties. Further, it is used as a reagent to prepare derivatives of ferulic acid and caffeic acid, which shows anticancer properties.

Solubility
Miscible with water, alcohol, ether, acetone and most organic solvents.

Notes
Incompatible with strong oxidizing agents, alkali metals, strong acids, halides and aldehydes.
