Acrolein is commonly used as an herbicide to control weeds and algae in irrigation canals. It is also used in the oil and gas industry as a biocide in drilling waters and a scavenger for hydrogen sulfide and mercaptans. It is also sometimes used as a fixative when preparing biological specimens in electron microscopy.
