3-Methyl-1-Butanol Technical Information

CAS: 71-41-0
1-Pentanol, Pentan-1-ol, n-Amyl alcohol

CAS: 123-38-6
Propionaldehyde, Propanal

Colorless liquid with limited miscibility in water above 15 °C, soluble in ethanol and diethyl ether. 

Propionaldehyde is a colorless, flammable liquid, having a suffocating odor. It should be used as a chemical intermediate only. It undergoes reactions typical for the low molecular weight aldehydes, which, because of the terminal carbonyl group, are very reactive. Contamination or the exposure to elevated temperatures may induce a hazardous polymerization. Propionaldehyde is readily oxidized if in contact to oxygen and should therefore be stored under inert gases.
