Which Gases are Present in LPG?

  • LPG is not just a single gas.
  • There are a number of gases that fall under the LPG category.
  • The most common of these include propane, butane (n-butane) and isobutane (i-butane), as well as mixtures of these gases.
  • Other gases that also fall under the “LPG” label, including ethane, ethylene, propylene, butylene and isobutylene, as well as mixtures of these gases
  • The gases that fall under the “LPG” label, including ethane, ethylene, propane, propylene, normal butane, butylene, isobutane and isobutylene, as well as mixtures of these gases.
  • The two most common are Propane and Butane.
  • Isobutane (i-butane) is an isomer of butane with the same chemical formula as butane but different physical properties.
  • Isobutane is converted from butane in a process called isomerization.
  • It is classified as LPG, along with propane, butane and mixes of these gases.
