Applications

  • Acetaldehyde is used in crop protection for making methomyl.
  • In the agricultural industry, acetaldehyde is also used to make acetaldoxime which is used as an insecticide.
  • Used in the manufacture of perfumes, flavours, aniline dyes, plastics, synthetic rubber, pesticides, silvering mirrors, hardening gelatin fibres and pharmaceuticals.
  • Acetaldehyde is a key raw material in the production of a wide range of chemical products such as paint binders in alkyd paints and as a plasticizer for plastics.
  • Because of its relatively low solvent retention, it only leads to a slight increase of the drying time of lacquer finishes.
  • In the food and beverage industries, it is used as a preservative in fruits, in flavouring agents, manufacture of vinegar and yeast and is added to milk products, baked goods, fruit juices, candy, desserts, and soft drinks.
