Production methods:

Propylene can be obtained from the distillation of a component of crude oil, natural gas purification or cracking of large hydrocarbons. Propylene The raw material for polypropylene production is one of the most used polymers in packaging. Most propane is polymerized using a Ziegler-Natta catalyst that produces isotactic polymers.

Chemical reactions:

Propylene-related reactions include: 1- Polymerization 2- Oxidation 3- Halogenation 4- Hydrohalogenation 5. Alkylation 6- Hydration 7. Hydrofracking


Safety Information:

Propylene gas is safe for the eyes and skin, but liquid propylene may cause freezing and burning. This gas is flammable and its mixture of air may explode.
