Trimethylopropane is a solid, white-colored crystalline, an organic compound with three hydroxyl functional groups in it. It is a hydroscopic compound, which is why it needs to be stored carefully to avoid moisture absorption. The compound is readily soluble in water, acetone, and alcohol and when melted it forms a transparent liquid. Generally, it is manufactured in the form of semi-transparent white flakes and is used in professional, consumer, and industrial applications. Trimethylopropane majorly used in the production of inks, greases, metalworking fluid, adhesives, wax-blends, sealants, coatings, polymer, plastics, polish, and others. Moreover, it is used in saturated polyesters such as acrylic acid esters, coil paintings, alkyds for painting, polyurethane, and more. It is also used as building block in polymer industry and as a base lubricant in motor oils.
