Propylene oxide (C3H6O), also called epoxypropane, refers to a synthetic cyclic ether usually manufactured by the dehydrochlorination of propylene chlorohydrin or the indirect oxidation of propylene. It is a clear, volatile, flammable liquid that is soluble in water and alcohol and non-corrosive to metals. Consequently, it is extensively used in automotive, electronics, textile, and furnishing and as a raw material in manufacturing various chemicals.
