About Propylene Oxide:

In appearance, Propylene Oxide appears as a clear, colourless volatile liquid with an ethereal odour. It has a flashpoint of about -35°F, while its boiling point is about 95°F. Its primary role is its use in the manufacture of polyether polyols, which are further utilised in the production of polyurethane plastics. Its niche applications include its use as a pesticide and a fumigant for the sterilisation of packaged foods and plastic medical instruments. It is also utilised as a fumigant, in making detergents or lubricants, and to make other chemicals.

Production Processes

  • Production of Propylene Oxide via Chlorohydrin; and via Oxidation

In order to produce Propylene Oxide via oxidation, propylene is used as a starting material. In this process, propylene is oxidised with the addition of an organic hydroperoxide, which finally produces Propylene Oxide.

Procurement Resource also provides the production cost analysis of Propylene Oxide.
