Isobutanol is an organic compound with the formula (CH3)2CHCH2OH. It is a colorless, flammable liquid, and low boiling isomer of butanol with a characteristic smell is mainly used as a solvent. Isobutanol is produced by the carbonylation of propylene. Isobutanol is used as a raw material for isobutyl acrylate, coating resins, isobutyl acetate, and paint thinners. Isobutanol has offers a range of technical and industrial applications such as precursor of various isobutyl esters, chemical intermediate, solvents for paints & coating, production of pharmaceutical, oil and gas, automotive paint cleaner additive and building & construction industry. Isobutanol is very soluble in water and miscible with alcohols and ketones.
