Butyraldehyde is used as an intermediate in the production of synthetic resins, rubber accelerators, tanning auxiliaries, perfumes, flavors, plasticizers and high molecular weight polymers. It acts as a chemical intermediate to prepare other chemicals such as 2-ethylhexanol, n-butanol, polyvinyl butyral (PVB), n-butyric acid and pharmaceuticals.
