Used as solvent and moisturizer, also used to make plasticizers, drugs, polyester resins, polyurethane resins, etc.
Used as a chromatographic reagent, also used for organic synthesis
1,4-Butanediol is widely used. More than half of the U.S. and Western Europe are used for the production of tetrahydrofuran, followed by gamma-butyrolactone and polybutylene terephthalate, the latter being rapidly evolving engineering plastics; 1,4-butanediol as an increase Chain agents and polyester raw materials are used to produce polyurethane elastomers and flexible polyurethane foams; esters made from 1,4-butanediol are a good addition to cellulose, polyvinyl chloride, polyacrylates, and polyesters. Plasticizer. 1,4-butanediol has good hygroscopicity and can be used as gelatin softener and water absorbent, cellophane and other non-paper treatment agents. N-methylpyrrolidone, N-vinylpyrrolidone and other pyrrolidone derivatives can also be prepared, and also used for the preparation of vitamin B6, pesticides, herbicides, and solvents, plasticizers, lubricants, and humidifiers for various processes. , flexibility, adhesives, and brighteners for electroplating industries.
