Isoprene is mostly used in the production of synthetic rubber, polyisoprene and butyl rubber. It is a colourless liquid with an aromatic odour. It is insoluble in water, soluble in alcohol and because of its low vapour pressure and double bonds it is very reactive. Essentially derived from crude oil via a number of extraction steps.
