1-Bromopropane is a water-white to slightly pale yellow and non-flammable chemical compound. It is also known as N-Propyl Bromide or nPB. Its chemical formula is C3H7Br. It has no flash point, leaves no residue, dries quickly, and contains no chlorine. It is an organic solvent used for the cleaning for instance precision cleaning (vapor degreasing), medical devices, oxygen system cleaning and electronics cleaning. It is an adhesive solvent and used in dry cleaning fabrics. It is also used as a flame retardant in blowing agents of some foams such as an extraction agent for the purification of herbs & natural plant extracts, a diluent in the manufacturing of medicinal tablets. 1-Bromopropane is also used in adhesive formulations and as a solvent in an aerosol formulations.
The key benefits are no flash point (nonflammable), superior acid neutralization, no chlorine, superior solvency (kb value = 130), minimal non-volatile residue, rust formation prevention, non-hazardous air pollutant, U.S. EPA SNAP (Significant New Alternative Policy) approved, non-hazardous waste (not regulated by dot for transportation), non-ozone layer depleting (atmospheric life span of only 11-19 days), biodegrades rapidly in the environment (hydrolysis in water with half-life of 19 days), low global warming potential, non-hazardous decomposition and short environmental life.
