1,3-Butadiene Supplier to Cincinnati

Cincinnati businesses who buy 1,3-butadiene have a reputable local producer at Wright Brothers. 1,3-butadiene is a flammable gas that is colorless and is delivered as a liquid under its own vapor pressure.

1,3-butadiene is a specialty olefin first synthesized in large quantities to facilitate the synthetic rubber business that grew because of the shortage of natural rubber during World War II.

These days, the demand for rubber tires still accounts for the majority of all 1,3-Butadiene production. Continuing research in specialty rubber and related polymers drives the demand for cylinder quantities of High Purity 1,3-Butadiene. It is also used in specialty organic chemical synthesis, and in mixtures, as a standard for environmental air monitoring.

Most 1,3-Butadiene production relies on n-butane as a starting material, collected from midstream natural gas processing plants. High Purity 1,3-Butadiene can be created from acetylene, 1-butene and ethanol, generally however, high purity 1,3-butadiene is distilled from the commercial n-butane process.
