Tetra-N-Butyl Titanate Market: Introduction
Tetra-n-butyl titanate is an organic compound that falls under the category of organic titanates. Tetra-n-butyl titanate is also known as titanium butoxide, butyl titanate, tetra butyl orthotitanate and tetrabutoxy titanium. It is a pale yellow colored liquid that has an alcoholic odor. The density of tetra-n-butyl titanate is almost equal to that of water and it is soluble in most organic solvents except ketones. Tetra-n-butyl titanate is commercially produced by the reaction of titanium tetrachloride & butanol. It is a corrosive and flammable liquid, which is highly sensitive towards moisture. Tetra-n-butyl titanate reacts vigorously with sulfuric acid, nitric acid and oxidizing materials along with hydroxides & peroxides. It is used as a catalyst in the production of polyesters, plasticizers and methacrylic esters. Tetra-n-butyl titanate also finds applications as an adhesion promoter and a cross linking agent for polymers. It is also used in the coating industry and in the surface modification of glass and metals. Tetra-n-butyl titanate is also used in the electronics industry to increase a material’s conductive properties. It is slightly hazardous in nature, causes irritation to the eyes & skin along with nausea. On heating, tetra-n-butyl titanate emits irritating fumes that result in the formation of explosive mixtures with air.
