Petrochemical products from Propylene

Propylene petrochemicals derived flow chart, with different chemical process and mechanisms using catalyst,butyraldehyde, polypropylene, isopropylalcohol, phenol, acetone
Flow chart of Propylene Derivatives
 A simple flow chart can explain the chemical products derived from the propylene. Polypropylene is derived by catalysis process, each sequence is specified like propylene is treated with benzene to get cumene and it is reacted with air to get cumene hydroxide and finally acetone.

Propylene is treated with acid to get three compounds trimer, tetramer, n-olefins. Trimer and Phenol produces Nonylphenol. Tetramer  is reacted with Benzene to produce Dodecylbenzene and used for Detergent manufacturing. Similarly n-Olefins are reacted with Benzene to get Alkylbenze to produce Detergents. Another reaction mechanism to produce Acrylonitrile is reacting Propylene with Oxygen and Ammonia or by us Nitric Oxide and catalyst.

Propylene is reacted with chlorine to get allylchoride which is used for glycerol. By using Hypochlorous   and acid Propylene is converted to Propylene oxide.

Propylene derivative petrochemicals:
Acrylnoitrile           ==  used in home furnishings, Apparel.
n-butanol               ==  used in amino resins, solvents, glycol ethers, plasticisers, acrylates
propylene oxide      ==  used for urethane polyols, ethers, amines, propylene glcol
polypropylene        ==  extrusion, fibers and filaments, injection molding
isopropyl alcohol    ==  cosmetics, pharmaceutical, process solvent, acetone
