Pentaerythritol is an organic compound with the formula C(CH2OH)4. Classified as a polyol, it is a white solid. Pentaerythritol is a building block for the synthesis and production of explosivesplasticspaintsappliancescosmetics, and many other commercial products.

Pentaerythritol is a versatile building block for the preparation of many polyfunctionalized compounds. Derivatives of pentaerythritol are components of alkyd resinsvarnishespolyvinyl chloride stabilizers, tall oil esters, and olefin antioxidants. It can be found in transformer oilplasticspaintscosmetics, and many other applications.

Polyester derivatives

Pentaerythritol is a precursor to esters of the type C(CH2OX)4. One such derivative is pentaerythritol tetranitrate (PETN), a vasodilator and explosive. The trinitrate derivative is called pentrinitrol (Petrin). The tetraacetate is called normosterol (PAG). The polymer cross-linking agent pentaerythritol tetraacrylate.

Fire retardant

Pentaerythritol is used as a fire retardant, such as in plastics. Produces thick carbon barrier upon heating protecting the surface substrate.
