DIMETHYL TEREPHTHALATE is a product provided by Research-Lab Fine Chem Industries. Laboratory reagents are chemicals which are used in laboratories as a part of experimental procedures. These reagents can be important parts of chemical reactions, analytical reagents or starting material for the production of other materials.
DIMETHYL TEREPHTHALATE is the diester formed from terephthalic acid and methanol. The reagent is slightly soluble in water. Dimethyl terephthalate can be produced by the esterification of terephthalic acid. While it is stable under general conditions, this reagent is incompatible with strong oxidizing agents. Dimethyl terephthalate has a variety of applications in chemical and biological sectors:
This compound finds several applications in the synthesis of various organic derivatives.
Dimethyl terephthalate is utilized in the production of polyesters, including polyethylene terephthalate (PET), polytrimethylene terephthalate (PTT), and polybutylene terephthalate (PBT).
It is additionally used to produce the diol, cyclohexanedimethanol, which is a useful monomer.
This reagent is suitable for the industrial synthesis of products and research applications.
