If you’re looking for a high purity hydrocarbon solvent for:

  • Industrial Extraction
  • Pharmaceutical manufacturing or processing
  • Post-processing for botanical extracts
  • Organic synthesis
  • Inks, paints & toners


Looking for a solvent with a high boiling point and a low flash point? Look no further than 99% n-heptane! This hydrocarbon solvent is popular in various industries for its unique chemical properties, making it an excellent choice for multiple applications.

At its core, n-heptane is a colorless, flammable liquid with a strong, sweet odor. It is a highly volatile solvent that evaporates quickly and easily at room temperature. This makes it an ideal choice for cleaning applications where residue needs to be removed promptly and effectively.

But what sets n-heptane apart from other solvents is its high boiling point. This means it can be used in applications requiring a higher temperature than other solvents can handle. For example, it is commonly used in the automotive industry for fuel testing, calibration, and manufacturing rubber and plastic products.

Due to its highly volatile nature, handling n-heptane with care and using it in well-ventilated areas is essential. Proper safety precautions should always be taken when using any solvent.

99% n-heptane is a versatile and practical solvent with many applications. Whether you need it for cleaning, manufacturing, or extraction, it is an excellent choice for any industry.
