Butadiene

Definition: “Butadiene” is the head of the C4 olefins family. Butadiene is a gas that condensates at -4.5°C. Mainly produced as byproducts from Ethylene by Ethane by steam cracking at high temperature (900°C), the Butadiene can also be obtained by Butane dehydrogenation or from Ethanol.

Comments: Butadiene is mostly converted into Styrene Butadiene or Styrene Butadiene Rubber (SBR) more well known as synthetic Rubber 

Polybutadiene is also used in tyres and can be used as an intermediate in the production of acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS). ABS is widely used in items such as telephones, computer casings and other appliances.
