Pentane (C5H12) is one of the most volatile liquid alkanes at ambient temperature.
Therefore, it is often used in laboratories as a solvent that can evaporate quickly and easily. However, this gas can be found in more applications. Pentane can also be added to refrigerant systems as a refrigerant fluid additive or to produce (polystyrene) foams.
Even though Pentane can be highly useful, it can also be highly dangerous for your health. At very high concentration levels, confusion signs or even convulsive coma may occur.
