1,3-Propanediol Production Cost Analysis 2021

1,3-Propanediol is an organic compound. It is a three-carbon diol, which is a colourless viscous liquid i.e., miscible with water. 1,3-Propanediol is the simplest member of the class of propane-1,3-diols with propane, where a hydroxy group substitutes one hydrogen from each group of methyl. It is used in the synthesis of certain polymers and as a solvent, as well as an antifreeze. It is an aprotic solvent and a metabolite. It is primarily used as a building block in the manufacturing of polymers such as polytrimethylene terephthalate. 1,3-Propanediol can be formulated into several industrial products like composites, adhesives, laminates, coatings, mouldings, aliphatic polyesters, and even copolyesters. It is used in wood paint as well. It can also be used in certain food products like alcoholic beverages, confections and frostings, frozen dairy products, and in seasonings and flavourings, among others.
