Major Uses

For pentane (USEPA/OPP Pesticide Code: 098001) there are 0 labels match. /SRP: Not registered for current use in the U.S., but approved pesticide uses may change periodically and so federal, state and local authorities must be consulted for currently approved uses./
Constituent in motor and aviation fuel; in solvent extraction processes, as a general laboratory solvent, and as a medium solvent for polymerization reactions; as raw material for production of olefins and other industrial chemicals like amyl chloride. Pentane is used in the manufacture of ice and low-temperature thermometers.
Additive in automotive, aviation and farm fuels.
Artificial ice manufacture, low-temperature thermometers, solvent extraction processes, blowing agent in plastics (e.g. expandable polystyrene), pesticide.
Production of olefin, hydrogen and ammonia.
Component of lighter fluids and blowtorch fuel; general laboratory solvent; medium solvent for polymerization reactions; synthesis of amyl chlorides
The fundamental chemical reactions for pentanes are sulfonation to form sulfonic acids, chlorination to form chlorides, nitration to form nitropentanes, oxidation to form various compounds, and cracking to form free radicals. /Pentanes/
n-Pentane is used as a solvent and for the production of isopentane by acid-catalyzed isomerization.
