1,4 Butanediol (BDO)

1,4-Butanediol. It is biodegradable with high melting point and is soluble in water, alcohols, ketones and esters. It reacts with terephthalic acid to produce polybutylene terephthalate (PBT). It also reacts with adipic acid to yield polyesters with biodegradability characteristics. It produces polymers which exhibits greater hydrophobicity, crystallinity, strength, hydrolysis resistance and better low temperature flexibility than those produced from ethylene glycol. Used in polyurethane foams and elastomers.

Hansen Solubility Parameters

[17.1, 9.8, 20.7]
[δD - Dispersion force interactions, δP - Polar force interactions, δH - Hydrogen bond force interactions]

Please note, these HSP values are estimations. It is based upon the “like seeks like” principle. It splits an ingredients interactions into three parameters; δD (Dispersion force interactions), δP (Polar forces interactions) and δH (Hydrogen bond force interactions). Hansen Solubility Parameters can help you find a wide range of products that are predicted to be compatible with 1,4 Butanediol (BDO). A practical determination of these HSP values would provide higher certainty. Learn More.
