2-Methyl-1,3-Butadiene Production Cost Analysis 2020

Isoprene or 2-Methyl-1,3-butadiene is an unsaturated hydrocarbon. It is manufactured naturally by many plants and animals, including humans. Its polymers are the primary component of natural rubber. C. G. Williams first named the compound in 1860. Isoprene is naturally found in several species of trees, for example, oaks, poplars, eucalyptus, and some legumes. The yearly manufacturing of isoprene emissions by vegetation is around 600 million metric tons, half from tropical broadleaf trees and the remainder primarily from shrubs. Isoprene emission is a mechanism through which trees combat abiotic stresses. It can also protect against moderate heat temperatures (around 40 °C). It can protect plants against large fluctuations in leaf temperature. Isoprene confers resistance for the reactive oxygen species as well. Thus, in the night, little isoprene is emitted from tree leaves, whereas in the daytime, emissions are expected to be substantial during hot and sunny days, up to 25 μg/(g dry-leaf-weight)/hour in many oak species.
