Wholesale Buying of Pentanol

Chemical wholesalers buy chemicals from manufacturers and redistribute them as raw materials to manufacturers of products that require chemical input. The construction and product manufacturing sectors are the main customers of chemical wholesalers; therefore, their production levels significantly affect the needs of this sector. Pentanol is also available on the wholesale market. Pentanol is a colourless liquid with a moderate to a moderately strong odour. It is less dense than water with ignition point 91°F and boiling point 280°F. Vapours are heavier than air.

Moderate toxicity if ingested. The vapour can irritate the skin and eyes. It is used as a solvent to make other chemicals. Reportedly, the air odour detection level for 1-pentanol is 10ppm. There are eight isomers of pentanol. It is said to be found in Brazilian nuts, bananas, cranberries, sweet cherries, bourbon, vanilla, and rice bran. Pentanol is characterized by its fusel-like sweetness, pleasant aroma and burning sensation. More toxic than ethanol. Keep in mind following things when buying pentanol in bulk:

Health Hazard

Cause eyes, skin, and respiratory tract inflammation; dizziness and headache; gasping and coughing; nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea. It has been reported vision loss in both eyes, hearing loss, dementia, and sometimes fatal poisoning, followed by severe neurological symptoms like diabetes, coma, and methemoglobinemia may occur.

Risk of Fire

Extremely flammable: sparks, heat, or flames easily ignite will. Vapours can form explosive mixtures with air. The vapours will reach the ignition source and cause flashback. Most vapours are heavier than air. They spread along the ground and gather in lower or limited areas (reservoirs, sewers, or basements). Inflow into the sewer may cause fire and explosion hazards. The container may explode when heated.

Storage and Handling

Pentanol storage should be done under nitrogen. The storage temperature must not pass 40 °C and moisture are excluded. Under these conditions, the storage stability of 12 months can be expected. Determine the storage location to minimize the risk of damage to the environment, the safety of employees and the public. Ensure the location of the storage area so that it will not pollute the air, soil, surface water or groundwater in the event of pentanol leakage or overflow.

Sizes available

In the wholesale market, mostly these sizes are available for acetone:

  • Barge
  • Cases
  • Bulk rail car
  • Pails
  • Bulk tank truck
  • Drums
  • Totes (IBC)


This reagent can be used as a solvent for coating CDs and DVDs. It is also involved in the synthesis of various compounds. Butyric acid reacts with 1-pentanol to form pentyl butyrate, which smells like apricot. This reagent is proper for the industrial synthesis of products and research applications. The raw material for pharmaceutical preparations; organic synthesis solvent. Some other uses include.

  • Antioxidants
  • Manufacture of corrosion inhibitors
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Fuel and lubricating oils additives
  • Herbicides
  • Plasticizers
  • Extractants
  • Polyvinyl chloride stabilizers
  • Cosmetics
  • Flotation aids
