A colorless gaseous hydrocarbon (C3H6) of the ethylene series, having a garlic odor. It occurs in coal gas, and is produced artificially in various ways. Called also propene.
Also called propene, a colourless, flammable, gaseous hydrocarbon obtained from petroleum; large quantities of propylene are used in the manufacture of resins, fibres, and plastics (see polyolefins), and numerous other chemical products.
A member of the ethylene series (C3H6).
A highly flammable gas that is colorless and has a mild odor. It is an important feedstock for the petrochemical industry.
a flammable gas obtained by cracking petroleum; used in organic synthesis
Three-carbon olefin produced in refineries by catalytic crackers and in petrochemical plants by steam crackers. Refiners process part of their supply into motor gasoline blendstock, particularly alkylate. Some refinery material and that from steam crackers becomes plastic, glue, and other synthetic products.
(C3H6) - a simple hydrocarbon having a three-carbon-atom chain but with a double bond between two carbon atoms and a single bond between the other two. Propylene is the raw material in the manufacture of polypropylene.
A raw material in the chemical, plastics and fibers industries. Major component of the plastic polypropylene.
Hydrocarbon gas used as a fuel gas in thermal spray processes. Higher flame temperature than hydrogen and propane.
Gaseous, unsaturated hydrocarbon, technically important raw material for other materials.
Second member of the olefin series of hydrocarbons (C3H6). Propylene is a flammable gaseous byproduct of the thermal or catalytic dehydrogenation of propane. Most propylene used for chemical purposes is generated as co-product in the production of ethylene via steam cracking of natural gas liquids, naphtha or gas-oil.
Unsaturated hydrocarbon (CH2 CHCH3 ), part of ethylene-propylene rubber, EPM and EPDM.
Propylene, also known by its IUPAC name propene, is an organic compound having the chemical formula C3H6. It is the second simplest member of the alkene class of hydrocarbons, ethylene (ethene) being the simplest. At room temperature and pressure, propylene is a gas.
