HERCUTEC Cyclopentane (C5H12)

Cyclopentane – our third isomer in the successful trio of pentanes – is also a colorless and highly volatile liquid. With the molecular formula C5H10, however, it differs from isopentane and n-pentane. Its boiling point of 49 °C is somewhat higher than that of the other two isomers. Nevertheless, cyclopentane is a highly flammable substance, so it must be handled properly.

Cyclopentane can be mixed with most organic solvents, but is practically insoluble in water. The petroleum-derived hydrocarbon is used primarily as a solvent for organic substances and as a foam blowing agent.

You can obtain our HERCUETEC Cyclopentane in pure form or as a mixture in combination with other pentane isomers. Please contact us so that our team of experts can provide you with comprehensive advice and, if desired, concrete suggestions for solutions for your intended use.
