     Information  @ a Glance 

  • In organic chemistry, the compound CH2=CH-CHO, more often called acrolein than the IUPAC name 2-propenal, is the simplest unsaturated aldehyde.
  • Acrolein is a colorless or yellow liquid with a disagreeable odor. It dissolves in water very easily and quickly changes to a vapor when heated. It also burns easily.


  • Acrolein is prepared industrially by oxidation of propene.
  • Efforts are underway to use propane as feedstock for the synthesis, however, this is more difficult.


  • A method to generate libraries of genomic DNA fragments containing oxidatively modified bases by using specific monoclonal antibodies to immuno precipitate enzyme-digested genome DNA.
  • The concentrations depend on the preparation method,H2 is the main product using a Ag/SiO2 catalyst, prepared by incipient-wetness technique.


  • Acrolein is used as a pesticide to control algae, weeds, bacteria, and mollusks. It is also used to make other chemicals.
  • Acrolein is used in the preparation of polyester resin, polyurethane, propylene glycol, acrylic acid, acrylonitrile, and glycerol.
  •  Acrolein tends to polymerize when left at room temperature, leaving a gummy yellowish residue with a putrid odor.
  • Acrolein is also a metabolite of the chemotherapy drug cyclophosphamide, and is associated with hemorrhagic cystitis.
