Properties of polar solvents for pharmaceutical active ingredients

Properties of Pentyl Acetate

  • Medium volatile liquid with high solvent power for numerous applications.
  • Miscible with most common organic solvents but practically insoluble in water.

Properties of n-Propanol

  • Mild smelling, semi volatile, polar and clear alcohol.
  • Low-viscosity and water missible.
  • Solvent of high purity and a starting material for synthesis.

Properties of Propion Aldehyde

  • Colourless liquid with limited miscibility above 15 ° C.
  • Soluble in ethanol and diethyl ether.

Properties of Butyraldehyde and Iso-Butyraldehyde

  • Colourless liquids miscible with almost all common organic solvents;
  • Very slightly soluble in water.

Properties of Pentanol, also known as n-Amyl Alcohol

  • Colourless liquid.
  • Missible with the common organic solvents.

Properties of 3-Methyl-1-Butanol, also known as Iso-Amyl Alcohol

  • Colourless liquid.
  • Miscible with almost all common organic solvents.

Applications of polar solvents

Applications of Pentyl Acetate for pharmaceutical active ingredients

  • Used as extractant for removing substances from aqueous systems because of its low solubility in water.

Applications of n-Propanol for pharmaceutical active ingredients

  • Serves as a starting material for the manufacture of medicines.
  • Besides others it is reacted with acetic acid to produce propyl acetate.

Applications of n-Propanol S for pharmaceutical active ingredients

  • Used for applications where a very high purity is required.

Applications of Propion Aldehyde, Butyraldehyde and Iso-Butyraldehyde for pharmaceutical active ingredients

  • Intermediates for the chemical industry.
  • Used as building block for pharmaceutical applications.

Applications of Pentanol and 3-Methyl-1-Butanol alcohols

  • Used as intermediates for the manufacture of pharmaceutical active ingredients.
