N-butanol is an important organic chemical raw material, mainly used in the production of butyl acrylate, butyl acetate, dibutyl phthalate, butylamine, ethylene glycol monobutyl ether and other downstream products, widely used in coatings, textiles Agents, plasticizers and other fields. N-butanol is also an extractant for oils, biochemicals and fragrances, an additive for alkyd paints, and is also used in the manufacture of surfactants.

In recent years, the domestic coatings industry has developed rapidly, and domestic coating raw material enterprises have also grown. They are able to independently produce and develop a variety of high-quality products. However, the development of downstream derivatives of n-butanol with high added value and high technical content still exists abroad. Larger gaps, some derivatives with special performance and high added value still need to be imported.
