PO(Propylene Oxide) Production Cost Analysis 2020
Propylene oxide is an example of an organic compound. This colourless volatile liquid has an odour that resembles ether, which is manufactured on a large scale commercially. Its primary application is its use in the manufacturing of polyether polyols for use in creating polyurethane plastics. It is known as a chiral epoxide. It is widely used as a racemic mixture. This chemical compound is sometimes called 1,2-propylene oxide to differentiate it from its isomer i.e., 1,3-propylene oxide, also known as oxetane.
The commercial manufacturing of propylene oxide originates from propylene. Two general approaches are employed, one, including hydrochlorination and the other, involving oxidation. Propylene oxide is widely used in the preparation of biological samples for electron microscopy, to eliminate residual ethanol that was previously used for dehydration. In a typical procedure, the sample is first immersed in a mixture of equal volumes of ethanol and propylene oxide for 5 minutes, followed by four times in pure oxide for 10 minutes each.
