SOLVENTS & HYDROCARBONS
Organic solvents are produced in the form of volatile fractions in the refinery of crude oil. Hydrocarbon solvents contain paraffinic, naphthenic, and aromatic constituents in various proportions. Aliphatic Solvents, Aromatic Solvents Molecules of aliphatic solvents have a straight-chain structure. Hexane (C6H14), gasoline (petrol, benzene), and kerosene are aliphatic solvents. Aliphatic solvents are used in oil extraction, degreasing, for manufacturing rubber and paints, as carriers for aerosols and disinfectants. Medium-heavy aliphatic solvents are produced from distillation cuts of crude oil. These types of compounds have a varied composition of hydrocarbon molecules with different lengths, which makes them suitable for various application fields.
Hexane is part of our de-aromatized, special boiling point (SBP) aliphatic hydrocarbon solvent range. These high purity fluids have stable compositions with fixed, narrow boiling ranges, making them especially suited to applications or industrial process conditions where a particular evaporation or drying performance is required. Key application areas include polymerization processes, specialist coatings and adhesives; pharmaceutical and food extraction processes; industrial cleaning and degreasing, textile and rubber manufacturing; and catalyst preparation. Heptane is a colourless fluid with a low odour and a medium-to-very narrow boiling range, offering a combination of relatively low odour and quick drying. Its ability to dissolve many organic compounds and evaporate easily means it is used as a solvent or diluent in a wide range of industrial applications. Key application areas include polymerization processes; specialist coatings and adhesives; pharmaceutical extraction processes, industrial cleaning and degreasing, textile and rubber manufacturing; and catalyst preparation.
Pentanes are a group of high purity aliphatic hydrocarbon solvents that comprise normal and iso-Pentane and blends of the two components. n-Pentane is well suited as a blowing agent and propellant for polymerization processes. Pentane plays a fundamental role in the production of polystyrene and polyurethane foams, serving as a blowing agent that helps to expand the raw plastic material and create the honeycomb structure within the foam that imparts excellent thermal properties. In polymerization, pentane as a diluent dissolves components and assists reactions between chemicals without process interference.
Molecules of pure aromatic solvents have benzene ring structures like benzene (C6H6), toluene (C6H5CH3) and xylene (C8H10). Pure (high) aromatic solvents are used for degreasing, as thinners, for manufacturing paints, printing inks, insecticides, and agricultural chemicals.
