CAS NO. Is 8002-09-3 Pine Oil is Light Yellow or Brown Oily Liquid
Methyl isobutyl carbinol (MIBC) is an organic compound, a liquid
derivative of acetone, with a pungent alcoholic taste. It has
limited solubility in water, but it is miscible with most organic
solvents. The main use of MIBC is as a foaming agent in mineral
flotation and lubricant additive production.
Foaming, also called froth flotation, is a process of selectively
separating hydrophobic valuable minerals from hydrophilic waste
gangue. Froth flotation is the simplest method. With the help of
special chemicals, water and bubbles, minerals can be "skimmed"
from the surface of "bubbly" "slurry".
MIBC is used as a foaming agent in ore mining in the flotation
process, which includes copper and molybdenum sulfide and coal.
Compared with other bubblers, Celanese MIBC products have fast
kinetics and excellent selectivity, and can form dry but fragile
foams, thereby increasing the output and efficiency of mineral and
metal recovery. This technology has led to an industry-leading
method to separate valuable minerals from extracted ore.
MIBC can also be used in the production of lubricant additives
(ZDDP), as well as in the production of anti-wear and corrosion
inhibitors (for example in the production of brake fluids) and the
precursors of certain plasticizers.

Excellent foaming agent for non-ferrous metals and non-metal ores.
It is mainly used as a foaming agent for non-ferrous metal ore or
fine-grained sulfide ore containing a large amount of soil grade.
Although it is widely used in lead-zinc ore, copper-molybdenum ore,
copper-gold ore and copper-gold ore beneficiation worldwide. It is
particularly effective for improving the quality of concentrate.
