Monochlorobutene, also known as chlorobutene, is a colorless liquid with a fruity odor. It is used in the production of synthetic rubber, plasticizers, and as an intermediate for dyes and resins.
When rubber is exposed to monochlorobutene, the rubber may become brittle and crack due to the chemical's corrosive and volatile nature. In addition, the chemical can cause the rubber to swell and distort, leading to cracks and other physical damages. Furthermore, the chemical can cause changes in the rubber's molecular structure, leading to further mechanical and physical degradation.
