Global 5-amino-1-pentanol Market: Overview
5-Amino-1-pentanol is a liquid C5-aminoalcohol. It is an aliphatic amino-alcohol, both functional groups of which reside on terminal C atoms. It is an odorless, colorless to yellow/brown solid organic compound that liquefies after it melts and has the chemical formula of C5H13NO. 5-Amino-1-pentanol has potential plasma lipid-lowering properties. Its boiling is 222.4°C, and its melting point ranges from 33ºC to 35ºC. It easily dissolves in water. 5-Amino-1-pentanol has a density of 0.919 g/cm3. It does not contain any hazardous materials, and therefore, it is listed in various organizations and regulations such as European Standards, Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act (SARA), Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS), and Clean Water Act (CWA).
5-Amino-1-pentanol is primarily used as a corrosion inhibitor. It is mostly used in the manufacture of 5-phthalimido-1-pentanol in the presence of toluene, which acts as a solvent. It is also used as an emulsifying agent in insecticides, cosmetics, wax removers, paints, and dry-cleaning soaps. 5-amino-1-pentanol is used in the synthesis of S-glycosyl amino-acid building blocks. It is also used as a reagent in the synthesis of amino functionalized 4-chloro-2,2?:6?,2??-terpyridine (an amino-functional polysiloxane). Amino-functional polysiloxanes are very useful in the manufacture of protective coatings and resins, as they impart properties such as chemical resistance, heat resistance, weathering (primarily degradation by UV radiation), and corrosion control. As such, amino-functional polysiloxanes are highly favored for the manufacture of paints and coatings. This is anticipated to increase the demand for amino-functional polysiloxanes in the near future, driving 5-amino-1-pentanol market. Furthermore, over the last few years, the personal care industry has expanded at a rapid pace, particularly the cosmetic sector. The trend is anticipated to continue throughout the forecast period, thereby propelling the demand for 5-Amino-1-pentanol in the near future.
