MSDS for trans-2-Butene
@ 70 F
Member of the alkene group of hydrocarbons. Alkenes serve as intermediates in the preparation of a variety of organic compounds. In the industrially important Oxo process, alkenes react catalytically with carbon monoxide and hydrogen to give aldehydes. Alkenes are polymerized by heating with catalysts to give high-octane gasolines, plastics, and synthetic rubber.
Also called BUTYLENE, any of four isomeric compounds belonging to the series of olefinic hydrocarbons. The chemical formula is C4H8. The isomeric forms are 1-butene, cis-2-butene, trans-2-butene, and isobutylene. All four butenes are gases at room temperature and pressure.
