Propylene Oxide

Propylene Oxide (PO) is a result from the reaction of propylene. PO is a highly reactive bond which is used as a basic chemical for the chemical industry.




Propylene Oxide (PO) is a highly reactive, colorless, highly flammable, liquefied organic bond which is a basic component for various applications. Propylene Oxide is mainly used for the production of propylene glycol, but also as an intermediate for the production of polyetheroles for polyurethane foams. Propylene Oxide is also used for the production of carbonates, amines and ether. As a basic product PO is used in the starch industry, for the production of non-ionic tensides (textiles), in the dying industy and for the separation of crude oil emulsions.
