Acrolein CAS 107-02-8 is the simplest unsaturated aldehyde. It is a colourless liquid with a piercing,disagreeable,acrid smell. The smell of burnt fat (as when cooking oil is heated to its smoke point) is caused by glycerol in the burning fat breaking down into acrolein. It is produced industrially from propylene and mainly used as a biocide and a building block to other chemical compounds, such as the amino acid methionine.

Acrolein is mainly used in producing insecticide and imidacloprid in pesticide industry, dibromopropanal in pharmaceutical industry, feed additive methionine. Moreover, it is an important intermediate for compounding glycerin, spice, medicine, allylthiourea, etc.
Acrolein can be used in acrylic coating; It is raw material for producing dialdehyde and crosslinking agent; also used in producing colloid osmium, ruthenium, rhodium; It is important intermediate for producing imidacloprid (Agro-pesticide).
Acrolein can be mainly used as oilfield water injection fungicides to inhibit the growth of bacteria in the water to prevent corrosion caused by bacteria in the formation and blockage
