Product molecular structure：
1,3-Butadiene is a simple conjugated diene. It is a colourless gas with a mild aromatic or gasoline-like odour and incompatible with phenol, chlorine dioxide, copper, and crotonaldehyde. The gas is heavier than air and may travel along the ground; distant ignition is possible. It is an important industrial chemical used as a monomer in the production of synthetic rubber. Most butadiene is polymerised to produce synthetic rubber. While polybutadiene itself is a very soft, almost liquid, material, polymers prepared from mixtures of butadiene with styrene or acrylonitrile, such as ABS, are both tough and elastic. Styrene–butadiene rubber is the material most commonly used for the production of automobile tyres. Smaller amounts of butadiene are used to make nylon via the intermediate adiponitrile, other synthetic rubber materials such as chloroprene, and the solvent sulpholane. Butadiene is used in the industrial production of cyclododecatriene via a trimerisation reaction.
1,3-Butadiene is a petroleum product obtainedby catalytic cracking of naphtha orlight oil or by dehydrogenation of buteneor butane. It is used to produce butadiene–styrene elastomer (for tires), syntheticrubber, thermoplastic elastomers, foodwrapping materials, and in the manufactureof adiponitrile. It is also used forthe synthesis of organics by Diels–Aldercondensation.
Synthetic elastomers (styrene-butadiene, polybutadiene, neoprene, nitriles), ABS resins, chemical intermediate.
1,3-Butadiene can undergo a four-component coupling reaction with aryl Grignard reagents, and alkyl fluorides in the presence of nickel catalyst to form 1,6-octadiene carbon compound substituted with alkyl and aryl groups at the 3- and 8-positions.
1,3-Butadiene is a useful diene for Diels Alder reaction.
It may be used in the synthesis of the following:
1-Silyl-substituted 1,3-butadienes, by [RuHCl(CO)(PCy3)2]-catalyzed silylative coupling of terminal (E)-1,3-dienes with vinylsilanes.
Synthetic rubber and thermoplastic resins.
Disilylated dimers by reacting with chlorosilanes.
Octa-2,7-dien-1-ol via palladium catalyzed-hydrodimerization.
