(Redirected from Butylene glycol)
Butanediol, also called butylene glycol, may refer to any one of four stable structural isomers:
There are also two geminal diols (gem-diols), which are less stable:
Isobutylene glycol and methylpropanediolEdit
Isobutylene glycol may be considered a kind of butylene glycol, similarly to butane historically including n-butane and isobutane. The modern name for the closely related type of compounds is methylpropanediol. There are two stable structural isomers:
and one unstable geminal diol:
- 2-methylpropane-1,1-diol (not a glycol)
These three methylpropanediols are structural isomers of butanediols. They are not chiral.
- Crisnatol, an experimental medication
- 2-Methyl-2-propyl-1,3-propanediol, medication precursor and active metabolite
- Hydroxyl-substituted butanes
- Butyl alcohol
- Butanetetrol (butanetetraol), including 4-carbon sugar alcohols
