1,5-Pentanediol is a raw material used in polyurethane coatings, polyester resins, and polycarbonate diol resins. Because of its low melting point, it is easier to handle than 1,6-hexanediol. The chemical structure of 1,5-pentanediol, which contains terminally located hydroxyl groups, makes it highly reactive and useful for the manufacture of a variety of derivatives. UBE is the sole manufacturer in Japan.
