Industrial chemistry


Other name: Pentane, Skellysolve A, Hydrocarbons, C5-rich, Pentanen, Pentani, Tetrafume, Tetrakil.

CAS №: 109-66-0

Molecular formula:C5H12

N-Pentane is a pentane isomer with straight chain normal structure. It is a clear, colorless solution with a mild and gasoline-like odor. N-pentane is a low-boiling solvent, which greatly increases the safety demands to work with it.

N-pentane is often used to produce:

• lighter fluid,

• blowtorch fuels,

• petroleum products,

• propellants.

N-pentane can be used as a foaming and desorption agent.
