are defined as organic compounds containing a formyl group. Aldehydes can be classified into formaldehyde, acetaldehyde, butyraldehyde, benzaldehyde, propionaldehyde, tolualdehyde, furfural and others. Properties and characteristics of aldehydes differs based on the remainder of the molecule apart other than just the formyl family group. Applications of each of the aldehydes differs depending on the containing chemicals. Aldehydes are primarily used in medical, industrial, food applications. On the industrial front, aldehydes are majorly used as precursor to various other chemicals such as acids, alcohols, resins etc. Formaldehyde is the largest and most commonly available segment of the formaldehyde group. Applications in producing resins is the major growth drivers of the formaldehyde coupled with increasing consumption in producing chemicals such as 1-4, butanediol.
