Uses: 1,3 - Butadiene has been widely used in the manufacture of synthetic rubber. It has been extensively used in various polymerizations in the plastic industry and is particularly useful in Diels_alder reaction where it combines with activated olefins to give hydroaromatic compounds. Increased usage in the resins and plastics field.
