Pentane is a volatile, colourless liquid with a characteristic gasoline like odour. In addition to being a component of natural gas pentane has numerous industrial uses. Primarily, pentane is used to create a blowing agent which is then used to create a foam known as polystyrene. Polystyrene is used to make insulation materials for refrigerators and heating pipes. As well, pentane is used in geothermal powers stations as a binary fluid, due to its low boiling point of 36ºC.
