Aldehydes is a class of organic chemical compounds which are represented by a structural formula R-CHO. Crotonaldehyde, an unsaturated aldehyde, is highly a flammable, colourless to pale yellow liquid synthesized by aldol condensation of acetaldehyde. The chemical exhibits moderate solubility in water whereas it is miscible in organic solvents. Moreover, Crotonaldehyde is a highly reactive and strong reducing agent characterized by a pungent odour and lachrymatory effect. Crotonaldehyde is used majorly used as a raw material for preparation of sorbic acid and crotonic acid. Moreover, its properties render the chemical an effective precursor for numerous fine chemicals. Also, it finds application in preparation of pesticides and surfactants. Some of the other application areas of crotonaldehyde include locating leaks in pipes, leather tanning, as a solvent for polyvinylchloride among the others. The use of crotonaldehyde in variety of aforementioned applications can be attributed to the presence of a double bond and an aldehyde functional group.
Crotonaldehyde Market: Drivers & Restraints
The global crotonaldehyde market is set to witness a steady growth during the forecast period. The growth of overall global chemicals market is expected to result in growth of global crotonaldehyde market. Moreover, the growing demand from developing countries, especially from those in Asia Pacific is expected to fuel the growth of global crotonaldehyde market. The growing demand for packaged food has resulted in a growth in demand for preservatives such as sorbic acid. Crotonaldehyde is a key raw material in manufacturing sorbic acid, as such, the growing demand for sorbic acid is expected to in turn result in growth of global crotonaldehyde market. On the flipside, the fact that over exposure to crotonaldehyde causes several health hazards, may act as a restraint to growth of global crotonaldehyde market.
