Pentaerythritol is a white, crystalline powder and is mainly used in the manufacture of alkyd resins as well as plasticizers and emulsifiers. 

Pentaerythritol is not hygr., flammable, readily soluble in hot water, in cold water slightly soluble, slightly soluble in alcohol, and insoluble in benzene, tetrachloromethane, ether and petroleum ether. 


The technical production is effected by the reaction of formaldehyde with acetaldehyde triple aldol reaction followed by a crossed Cannizzaro reaction. It is worked with a molar excess of formaldehyde in order to avoid the formation of dipentaerythritol. 

Chemical Properties:

The four OH-groups go mainly in for alcohols typical reactions, such as esterification with acids. In the case of esterification of pentaerythritol with nitric acid, which is not quite correctly called nitration, the pentaerythritol tetranitrate (nitropenta) is formed, which is one of the most explosive blasting today and it beats, for example, the much-quoted C4 by far in its devastating explosive effect and, therefore, is used by the military or exclusively for special areas.

Pentaerythritol in micronized form is a white fine powder and is used primarily as a raw material for the production of fire protection coatings and paints.

Fire protection colors are colors with added flame retardants. Such paints are mainly used in commercial sectors - in private sector it is used extremely rare. In accordance with the legal requirements certain areas including fire stairs must be protected against fire. 

With the help of a flame retardant, the fire-protection is guaranteed. The most well-known flame retardants include, in particular, halogenated organic phosphorus compounds.
