CAS number 98-83-9
Alpha-methyl styrene or 2-phenylpropene is a colorless or slightly yellow hydrocarbon aromatic, flammable aromatic organic liquid having an unpleasant odor. It is practically insoluble in water. It is a by-product in the productionn of phenol according to the cumene process.
Alpha-methyl styrene (AMS) is a chemical intermediate used in the manufacture of plasticizers, resins and polymers.
Diacetone Alcohol ( DAA)
EINECS number 204-626-7
CAS number 123-42-2
Diacetone alcohol or DAA is an oxygenated solvent derived from acetone which has two alcohol and ketone functionalities. It is the solvent of choice for many inks and coatings, including coil coatings, wood varnishes, and architectural coatings. It is also used in the treatment of textiles and leather and is an excellent cleaning solvent. It is a good solvent for many organic peroxides.
EINECS number 201-052-9
CAS number 77-73-6
Dicyclopentadiene, abbreviated DCPD, is the dimer of cyclopentadiene (CPD). In the pure state DCPD is a volatile solid with a characteristic odour. Dicyclopentadiene is coproduced in large quantities in the steam cracking of naphtha and gas oils to ethylene. In addition, it can be prepared in a Diels-Alderreaction of 2 cyclopentadiene molecules.
Most dicyclopentadiene is used as co-monomer in the production of synthetic resins, in particular unsaturated polyesters and synthetic rubbers, for example EPDM. Poly (DCPD), which contains some dicyclopentadiene as monomer is used in printing inks and engineering plastics.
CAS number 30025-38-8
Ethyl DIPROXITOL is a colourless, hygroscopic, high boiling liquid with a mild odour. It is miscible in any proportion with water and many organic solvents and has good solvent power for nitrocellulose and dyestuffs.
It is used as an intermediate and in formulations in industrial, professional or consumer applications, mainly in surface coatings and printing inks and paints, cleaners, agrochemical or de-icing/anti-icing formulations.
Pentanols – 99% (Isoamyl Alcohol)
Isoamyl Alcohol (at a minimum purity of 99%), is a mixture of isomers 3-methyl, 1-butanol and 2-methyl , 1-butanol, with a preponderance of the first (aproximately 85%). The raw material used by PETROM in the production of Isoamyl Alcohol is fusel oil, which in turn is a byproduct of the distilling of ethyl alcohol (ethanol).
Applications: The main applications of Isoamyl Alcohol are:
– the manufacturing of paints and varnishes, to produce isoamyl acetate;
– the manufacturing of plasticizers for the production of DIAP (DiisoAmyl phthalate);
– the manufacturing of perfumes, for the recovery of oils and essences;
– the synthesis of fragrances and aromas;
– the production of isoamyl salicylate, applied widely in soaps and cosmetic fragrances;
– the purification of phosphoric acid, acting as an extraction solvent.
– the production of Xanthates (mining industry)
EINECS number 200-661-7
CAS number 67-63-0
Isopropyl Alcohol is used in a variety of applications including as a solvent for industrial processes and coating; as a component in cleaning, car care and deicing products; as a wetting agent for printing inks and as a feedstock in the manufacture of ester.
Methyl Isobutylene Carbinol (MIBC)
EINECS number 203-551-7
CAS number 108-11-2
Methyl isobutyl carbinol (MIBC), a high boiling, colourless, stable liquid, is a solvent for ethyl cellulose and certain phenolics as well as many oils, dyes, gums, and natural resins. It is a latent solvent for nitrocellulose. Methyl isobutyl carbinol is miscible with organic solvents, but has only limited solubility in water.
