Vinyl AcetyleneVinyl Acetylene (C4H4) is a extremely dangerous because in high enough concentrations (typically > 30 mole percent, but pressure dependent) it can auto-detonate (explode without air being present) especially at elevated pressures, such as those seen in chemical plants processing c4 hydrocarbons. Because it is flammable, we recommend a safe chemical storage building that meets specific regulations for storing Vinyl Acetylene.
