HERCUTEC n-Pentane (C5H12)

The isomer n-pentane has the same molecular formula as isopentane (C₅H₁₂) and also belongs to the alkanes. Among our three pentanes, it is the linear representative of the three structural isomers. Under normal pressure, the boiling point of n-pentane is 36 °C. It is highly flammable, so proper handling is imperative.

The colorless liquid is hardly soluble in water (39 mg/l at 20 °C), but it is soluble in most organic solvents. In practice, n-pentane is used primarily as a CFC-free refrigerant and as a solvent for foaming rigid polyurethane foams, phenolic resin and polystyrene.

You can get our HERCUETEC n-pentane 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 solution proposals for your intended use.
