R600a, also known as CARE® 10, is refrigerant grade Isobutane, a natural, or "not in kind", refrigerant suitable for use in a range of refrigeration applications.
The use of R600a is increasing due to its low environmental impact and excellent thermodynamic performance and it is now the refrigerant gas of choice in domestic and small commercial refrigerators.
It is non-toxic with zero ODP (Ozone Depletion Potential) and very low GWP (Global Warming Potential).
1. It is mainly used for the production of isooctane by isomerization with isobutylene as a octane number improver for gasoline. The cracking can be made of isobutylene and propylene. Alkylation of n-butene with propylene to alkylate gasoline. Methacrylic acid, acetone and methanol can be prepared. Also can be used as a refrigerant.
2. High purity isobutane is mainly used as standard gas and the preparation of special standard mixture.
3. For the synthesis of isooctane, as a gasoline octane number improver for the preparation of isobutylene, propylene, methacrylic acid, used as a refrigerant.
