Global 1, 4-butane sultone Market: Introduction

1, 4-butane sultone is a sulfo-alkylating agent and has a weak carcinogenic activity. It is a six membered ?-sultone and a cyclic ester of 4-hydroxybutanesulfonic acid. It comes under heterocycles, sulfur & selenium compounds and, intermediates chemical category. 1, 4-butane sultone is also referred to as 1,2-Oxathiane 2,2-Dioxide; 1,4-Butane Sultone; NSC 71999; Butane Sultone; ?-Valerosultone; 4-Hydroxy-1-butanesulfonic Acid ?-Sultone; ?-Butane Sultone. 1, 4-butane sultone is clear colorless to yellowish transparent liquid. It works as an intermediate of the organic sulfonation agent. In synthetic chemistry 1, 4-butane sultone is used as an alkylating agent. Also, for electroplating intermediate 1, 4-butane sultone is used as a raw material. In addition to this, 1, 4-butane sultone is a homologue of 1, 3-propane sultone and finds application in surface active agents/surfactants, active pharmaceutical ingredients, photographic materials, lithium battery and, others. 1, 3-propane sultone and 1, 4-butane sultone are both main chemical intermediates, which are used for the synthesis of sensitizing dyes/ azo dyes, anionic Gemini surfactants, and secondary lithium ion solution. 1, 4-butane sultone is used in wood preservatives and is soluble in chloroform and methanol and is hardly soluble in water. 1, 4-butane sultone reacts under boiling water and is hazardous in nature. It is moisture sensitive is incompatible with strong bases and oxidizing agents.
