1,4-Butanediol Uses

Polymer production:
Polybutylene terephthalate (PBT): As one of the monomers of PBT, 1,4-butanediol is condensed with terephthalic acid (or its ester) to form PBT, which is a heat-resistant, Chemicals and engineering plastics with excellent mechanical properties are widely used in electronic appliances, automobile parts, packaging materials, etc.
Polyurethane (PU): BDO is one of the important raw materials for the production of polyurethane. It reacts with polyols and isocyanates to produce polyurethane foam, elastomers, coatings, adhesives, etc., which are widely used in furniture, construction, automobiles, clothing, footwear and other industries. .
Polyester fibers: In the manufacture of synthetic fibers, 1,4-butanediol reacts with certain diacids to produce polyester fibers, which are used in textiles and clothing.

Solvents and chemical intermediates:
Solvent: Although less commonly used than other alcohols, 1,4-butanediol can also be used as a solvent in certain chemical reactions and cleaning processes.
Intermediates: In the synthesis of fine chemicals, 1,4-butanediol can be converted into important chemicals such as γ-butyrolactone (GBL) and tetrahydrofuran (THF) as a starting material, which can be further used in pharmaceuticals, pesticides, and fragrances. , dyes and other fields.

Drugs and Medical:
Drug synthesis: In the field of medicine, 1,4-butanediol and its derivatives are used as synthetic raw materials to participate in the preparation of a variety of drugs, including certain diuretics, antibiotics, cardiovascular drugs, etc.

Other apps:
Cosmetics and Personal Care: Used as a moisturizer or solvent in cosmetics and personal care products.
Detergents and surfactants: used as synergists or auxiliary ingredients in some detergent formulations.
Agricultural chemicals: used as auxiliaries in pesticide formulations to improve the dispersion and stability of pesticides.

Prominent Applications of 1,4-Butanediol in Cosmetics

  1. Moisturizing and moisturizing: 1,4-butanediol, as a small molecular alcohol, has certain hygroscopicity and moisturizing ability. It attracts and retains moisture, helping to improve skin hydration, thereby increasing the moisturizing effect of cosmetics and making skin appear plumper and smoother.
  2. Solvent and co-solvent: In cosmetic formulas, 1,4-butanediol can be used as a solvent or co-solvent to help dissolve other active ingredients or oils that are not easily soluble in water, making the formula more uniform and stable, easy to apply and well absorbed. .
  3. Film-forming agent: In nail polish, hair spray or other products that need to form a protective film, 1,4-Butanediol may be used as a film-forming agent to help form a smooth and long-lasting film, improving the durability and gloss of the product.
  4. Adjust skin feel: Due to its unique physical and chemical properties, 1,4-butanediol can give cosmetics a good skin feel, making them feel more comfortable and non-sticky when used, enhancing consumers’ experience.
  5. As a synthetic precursor: Although not directly converted in cosmetics, 1,4-butanediol can be converted into other compounds such as gamma-butyrolactone (GBL) and tetrahydrofuran (THF), which are further used in more complex cosmetics The starting point for the synthesis of raw materials, such as certain polymers or special functional ingredients.
