Everything you need to know about pentane (C5H12)

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.
