About n Butanol

n-Butanol with the chemical formula C4H9OH is also known as 1-Butanol. Largely 1-butanol is produced by the hydroformylation of propylene to preferentially form the butyraldehyde n-butanal. 1n-Butanol occurs naturally as a minor product of the fermentation of sugars and other carbohydrates and is present in many foods and beverages.

n-butanol is a popular solvent and mainly used in the production of varnishes. 1-Butanol has been proposed as a substitute for diesel fuel and gasoline. It is also used in a wide range of consumer products.
