What is Propylene Oxide?

Propylene oxide (C3H6O) is a flammable cyclic ether manufactured by chlorinating propylene to chlorohydrin and then adding alkali. It is employed for the synthesis of various chemical compounds, such as polyether polyols and propylene glycol, which are used for absorbing excess moisture in medicines, cosmetics, and food products. It also assists in producing polyether that is the primary component of polyurethane foams and used as a border molding material. C3H6O is incorporated in adhesives that are designed for gluing wooden surfaces together. It is also used for manufacturing home maintenance degreasers required for removing grease and other hydrophobic materials from hard surfaces.
