Description

We are engaged in offering our clients with Phenol that is known for its precise pH value, accurate composition and environmental & skin friendly nature. All our chemicals are formulated using premium ingredients that are sourced from the reliable vendors of the market. Furthermore, we pack all our chemicals, using high-grade packaging material to ensure safety.

Phenol is an aromatic organic compound with the molecular formula C6H5OH. It is a white crystalline solid that is volatile. The molecule consists of a phenyl group (-C6H5) bonded to a hydroxyl group (-OH). It is mildly acidic, but requires careful handling due to its propensity to cause chemical burns. It is an important industrial commodity as a precursor to many materials and useful compounds. Phenol is also known as carbolic acid.

 

Applications :

The major uses of crude phenol, consuming two thirds of its production, involve its conversion to precursors to plastics. Phenol major uses involve its conversion to plastics or related materials. Phenol and its chemical derivatives are key for building polycarbonates, epoxies, Bakelite, nylon, detergents, herbicides such as phenoxy herbicides, and numerous pharmaceutical drugs. Phenol is used in manufacture of Bisphenol- A which is precursor to polycarbonates and epoxide resins. Phenol is also used in manufacture of phenolic resins like Bakelite . In manufacture of cyclohexanone which is precursor to Nylon. Intermediate to pharma drugs like aspirin, analgesics and herbicides. In making industrial paint strippers, cosmetics and in surgical procedures. It is primarily used to synthesize plasticsand related materials. Phenol and its chemical derivatives are essential for production of polycarbonates, epoxies, Bakelite, nylon, detergents, herbicides such as phenoxy herbicides, and numerous pharmaceutical drugs.
