Global Bio-based Polyurethane Market 2016-2020

Adipic acid, a petroleum-based compound, and few other di-acids are the commonly used conventional raw materials for manufacturing polyurethanes. However, natural oil polyols or bio-polyols derived from vegetable oils can also be used for manufacturing polyurethanes. These products are called bio-based polyurethanes. The most common sources of natural oil polyols include soy oil, castor oil, peanut oil and canola oil. Castor oil is primarily used for producing natural oil polyol due to the availability of ready hydroxyl group unlike other oils that require the introduction of hydroxyl group by other procedures. Polyols derived from Natural oils have comparable origins and applications but the materials produced are different depending on their manufacturing process. Apart from adipic ac......

Global Agricultural Micronutrients Market 2016-2020

Global Chlorinated Paraffins Market 2016-2020

Chlorinated paraffins, also called polychlorinated ns-alkanes, are produced by the chlorination of C10-C30 n-alkanes using molecular chlorine and liquid paraffin or solvents such as carbon tetrachloride. Chlorinated paraffins can also be produced by the chlorination of alpha-olefin. The production process of chlorinated paraffins is patented by certain companies, including INOVYN. The patents exist for the use of catalysts or additives to prevent contamination, retarding the chlorination. The reaction is dependent on n-alkane and occurs between 122°F and 302°F under high pressures or in the presence of ultraviolet light. The residual chlorine and reaction products are separated from the solvent by gas sparging. Final products are mixtures that are viscous and colorless or yellowish de......
