Triisobutylaluminum Market: Research by Key players, Type and Application, Future Growth 2026
Triisobutylaluminum is an organo-metallic compound that is used as a catalyst, reducing agent, and chemical intermediate in various chemical reactions. It is mainly used as a catalyst in the Ziegler-Natta reactions for olefin and diene polymerizations. It is used in packaging materials, fibers, and adhesives. Triisobutylaluminum is a pyrophoric liquid supplied undiluted or as a solution in a compatible hydrocarbon solvent. It finds applications in the manufacture of high density and linear low density polyethylene and polypropylene and synthetic elastomers. Triisobutylaluminum is also used in the manufacture of primary alcohols. Generally, triisobutylaluminum finds applications in end-user industries such as packaging, medical and pharmaceutical, chemical, electronics, and textile. Triisobutylaluminum is spontaneously flammable in air and reacts violently with water. It is corrosive in nature.
