Propane (C3H8)

Propane (C3H8)

Propane (C3H8) or dimethyl methane is an alkane that is mainly used as a combustion energy source in internal combustion engines or boilers. It is primarily released from natural gas purification or liquefied petroleum gases seperation. Propane is industrially used as an reactive agent voor synthesis of ethylene, benzene, toluene or xylene.


Propane effects on health

When pure, Propane (C3H8) is a colourless and odourless gas. Ethanethiol – an odorant – is added to easily detect any gas leak. Propant is harmful by inhalation and causes oxygen depletion. It can be found gaseous at ambient temperature but it also can liquefy under a pressure around 10 bars. Its combustion is clean and generates water and carbonic gas.
