Chemical Description

  • Cyclopentane is a highly flammable alicyclic hydrocarbon with chemical formula C5H10.
  • It consists of a ring of five carbon atoms, each bonded with two hydrogen atoms above and below the plane.
  • It occurs as a colorless liquid with a petrol-like odor.
  • Cyclopentane is in the class of cycloalkanes, being alkanes that have one or more carbon rings. It is formed by cracking cyclohexane in the presence of alumina at a high temperature and pressure.
  • It is utilized in various industries due to its unique chemical properties.
  • It is widely used as a blowing agent in the production of polyurethane foams. These foams are essential in insulation applications, particularly in refrigeration and construction, due to their excellent thermal insulation properties.
  • It serves as a solvent in various chemical reactions and processes.
  • Cyclopentane's non-polarity makes it effective in dissolving nonpolar substances and in reactions where a nonpolar environment is required.
  • It is used as an intermediate in the synthesis of pharmaceuticals and other organic compounds.
  • Its ring structure can be a key building block in the development of complex molecules.
  • In chemical research, cyclopentane is often employed in the study of cycloalkane reactions and mechanisms.
  • It can be used as a model compound to understand the behavior of cyclic hydrocarbons.
  • It is used as a fuel in certain aerosol products.
  • Cyclopentane's properties make it suitable for this application, although it is being phased out in favor of more environmentally friendly options.
  • It is a starting material or intermediate in the synthesis of various organic compounds.
  • Its cycloalkane structure can be modified to produce different derivatives with specific desired properties.
  • It can be used as a component in specialized fuel formulations and as an additive to improve certain fuel properties.
  • It must be stored in a cool, dry place away from heat and ignition.
  • Available in 150 Kg drum packaging.
