- Isoprene is a valuable monomer for
the rubber and most chemical industries.
Isoprene (C5H8) is a colourless liquid
with an aromatic odour. It is insoluble in water, soluble in alcohol and
because of its low vapour pressure and double bonds is very reactive
Isoprene is classified as a possible
human carcinogen by the International Agency for Research on Cancer
Isoprene Feedstock is mainly used to
produce isoprene and piperylene
- Some of the methods for isoprene
synthesis used on an industrial scale are
1. Synthesis from Isobutylene and formaldehyde.
2. Dehydration of isopentane.
3. Oxidative dehydration of isopentane.
4. Synthesis from propylene.
5. Synthesis from acetylene and acetone.
6. Recovery of isoprene from C5 fraction of liquid petroleum pyrolysis.
7. Liquid phase oxidation of hydrocarbons.
The rapid development of synthetic
rubber is a result of the huge demand for this material.
Isoprene prices in both, China and US
have witnessed a downtrend since the beginning of the year 2013.
The polymerisation of isoprene using
catalysts yields a synthetic rubber, polyisoprene, which closely
resembles natural rubber. Polyisoprene is used in a wide variety of
including medical equipment, baby bottle teats/nipples, toys, shoe
soles, tyres, and elastic films and threads for golf balls or textiles.
It is also used in adhesives and in paints and coatings
Isoprene is an important chemical with
annual demand of over a million tons per year
