Application of 2-Butanol (SBA)
2-Butanol (SBA) is used as an intermediate for the production of methyl ethyl ketone and also used in the manufacture of butyl acetate, sec-butyl ester and the like. It can be used as an anti-emulsifier, dye dispersant, dehydrating agent, paint remover, industrial detergent and so on. It is also used as a plasticizer, mineralizer, herbicide, oil extractant, and wetting agent, as well as in the perfume manufacturing. Since SBA can increase the processability and ductility of coatings, it can be used as a cosolvent for nitro spray paints and nitro paint diluents.
SBA is mainly used to make food flavors for bananas, butter, whiskey and cheese. 34 mg/kg SBA is used in confectionery; 32 mg/kg in baked goods; 12 mg/kg in soft drinks; 7.0 mg/kg in cold drinks; 4.0 mg/kg in cream; and 1.0 mg/kg in alcohol.
SBA can be used as a solvent and a standard material of chromatographic analysis.
SBA can be used in the manufacture of methyl ethyl keton and a raw material for synthetic flavors, dyes and so on. It can also used as a solvent.
Invasion routes: inhalation, ingestion, and percutaneous absorption.
Health hazards: This product has a stimulating and anesthetic effect.
SBA should be stored in a cool and well-ventilated warehouse. It should be kept away from fire and heat sources and the temperature should not exceed 30°C. Keep the container for storage sealed. It should be separated from oxidants, acids, and halogens and never be mixed with the latter. Use explosion-proof lighting and ventilation facilities and do not use mechanical equipment and tools that are prone to generate sparks. The storage areas should be equipped with spill treatment equipment and suitable containment materials.
