Propylene

At room temperature, propylene is a colorless, odorless gas, though when used as a fuel, it is mixed with minute quantities of foul-smelling sulphurous compounds (mercaptans) so that gas leaks can be readily detected. Propylene has a higher density and boiling point than ethylene due to its greater size. It has a slightly lower boiling point than propane and is thus more volatile.

- Production of polypropylene plastic.

- Raw material in the manufacture of acetone, isopropyl benzene, isopropanol, isopropyl halides, propylene oxide

- Along with benzene, propylene is a key feedstock in the cumene process, a reaction carried out on industrial scales to produce acetone and phenol.

- Propylene is also used during the production of many other chemical products such as isopropanol (propan-2-ol), acrylonitrile, and propylene oxide.
