Industrial Gas 99.9% Carbon Monoxide Applied In Bulk Chemicals Manufacturing
A colorless cryogenic liquid. Prolonged exposure to carbon monoxide rich atmospheres may be fatal. Contact with the liquid can cause severe frostbite. Less dense than air. Easily ignited and a flame can flash back to the source of a leak very easily. Burns with a violet flame. Under prolonged exposure to fire or intense heat the containers may rupture violently and rocket. CARBON MONOXIDE is used in organic synthesis, metallurgy, and a fuel.

1. Carbon monoxide is an industrial gas that has many applications in bulk chemicals manufacturing.
2. Large quantities of aldehydes are produced by the hydroformylation reaction of alkenes, carbon monoxide, and H2.
3. Hydroformylation is coupled to the Shell higher olefin process to give precursors to detergents.
Phosgene, useful for preparing isocyanates, polycarbonates, and polyurethanes, is produced by passing purified carbon monoxide and chlorine gas through a bed of porous activated carbon, which serves as a catalyst.
