Allyl alcohol, also known as 2-propenol, is a clear colorless liquid with a mild odor and an alcoholic type taste. It is a versatile organic compound used in a variety of industries including solvents and intermediates in organic synthesis, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, detergents, and food flavO-Rings.
When rubber is exposed to allyl alcohol, the rubber may become brittle and crack due to the plasticizers in the rubber breaking down. Additionally, allyl alcohol can cause swelling of the rubber, degrading its physical properties. Long-term exposure to allyl alcohol can also cause the rubber to become discolored or to crack prematurely.
