Tributyl O-Acetyl Citrate (ATBC), is an organic compound with the CAS number 77-90-7. It serves as a plasticiser in various industries, particularly in the production of PVC and other polymers. ATBC enhances the flexibility, durability, and workability of these materials, making it easier to process and mold them into desired shapes. Notably, Tributyl O-Acetyl Citrate (ATBC) is recognised for its relatively low toxicity compared to other plasticisers like phthalates. This characteristic has led to its increased use as a substitute for potentially harmful alternatives.
The compatibility of ATBC with different polymers allows for efficient blending with other plasticisers or additives, enabling the achievement of desired product properties.
What is the CAS Number of Tributyl O-Acetyl Citrate (ATBC)?
The CAS number assigned to Tributyl O-Acetyl Citrate (ATBC) is 77-90-7.
What is the UN Number of Tributyl O-Acetyl Citrate (ATBC)?
Tributyl O-Acetyl Citrate (ATBC) does not have a designated UN number. The UN number is typically assigned to substances or articles that pose a significant hazard during transportation. Since ATBC is primarily used as a plasticiser and does not exhibit hazardous properties that would warrant a UN number, it is not specifically listed under the UN classification for dangerous goods.
