R600a, also known as isobutane, is an organic compound with a chemical formula of C4H10. It is a colorless, flammable gas under normal temperature and pressure. Slightly soluble in water, soluble in ethanol, ether, etc., and form explosive mixtures with air. It is mainly found in natural gas, refinery gas, and cracked gas. It is obtained by physical separation and can also be obtained by the isomerization of n-butane. It is mainly used to make isooctane by hydrocarbonification with isobutylene, as an improver of gasoline octane number, and can also be used as a refrigerant.
Gas R600a is mainly used to produce isooctane through hydrocarbonization with isobutylene and is used as a gasoline octane improver. After cracking, that can produce isobutylene and propylene. Alkylation with n-butene and propylene, which can produce alkylated gasoline. Methacrylic acid, acetone, and methanol can be prepared. It can also be used as a refrigerant. High-purity isobutane is mainly used as standard gas and the preparation of special standard mixed gas. Used to synthesize isooctane, as a gasoline octane improver, used to make isobutylene, propylene, methacrylic acid, and used as a refrigerant.
