Pentane is a highly volatile, colorless, and flammable liquid compound, which is used in petroleum spirits. High volatility of pentane compound causes rapid evaporation, which propels the presence of VOCs in the air, thereby resulting in air pollution. As a result, various governments across the world have implemented stringent regulations on its handling and usage, owing to control its adverse effects on health and environment. It has three key isomeric forms, n-pentane, isopentane, and neopentane.
The pentane market is witnessing a steady growth across the world.
