Industrial Chemicals And Their Importance

  1. 1. Industrial Chemicals Properties That Matters
  2. 2. Chemical industry has beengrowing rapidly over the years.
  3. 3. What Sectors Are Dependent & Get Benefits Out Of It? Service Sectors Consumer Goods Sector Construction Sector Agriculture Sector....Many More
  4. 4. Let us have a look at some of the common industrial chemicals used in  industries
  5. 5. Ammonia: Used as a scrubbing solvent for removing pollutants from the combustion streams of fossil fuels because  being released into the atmosphere.
  6. 6. Sodium Hydroxid: An  alkaline substance used in soap and dyes manufacturing. Being a good cleansing agent,  it can also be used for neutralizing acids.
  7. 7. Phosphoric Acid: Mainly used in the production of fertilizer. Also used  in the manufacturing of food products and  soft drinks.
  8. 8. Chlorine: Used for manufacturing  titanium dioxide and bleaching agents.
  9. 9. Sodium Carbonate: Used in glass making and in the manufacturing of  many cleansing agents. Also known as soda  ash, it can be mined from the trona ore, or can be manufactured by reacting sulfuric acid  and salt.
  10. 10. Nitrobenzene: Primarily used for the manufacturing of aniline, used as a rubber additive for preventing oxidation.
  11. 11. Aluminum Sulfate: Used in wastewater and paper treatment industries  as pH buffer.
  12. 12. Nitric Acid: Most commonly used to react with ammonia to form solid  fertilizer ammonium nitrate.
  13. 13. Urea: Commonly used in the production  of fertilizers. Some can also be used in  manufacturing of livestock feed.
  14. 14. Benzene: Benzene is used as a  reactant for producing cumene and ethylbenzene. It is also a common organic  solvent as a precursor for cyclohexane.
  15. 15. Vinyl Chloride: Monomer form of PVC or polyvinyl chloride, it is used  as a building material.
  16. 16. Methanol: Used as reactant for the making of methyl tertbutyl ether, acetic  acid and formaldehyde.
  17. 17. Xylene: Primarily used for manufacturing phthalic anhydride, used for  making a variety of polymers and  plasticizers. Xylene is also used for  manufacturing terephthalic acid, the  polyester feedstock.
  18. 18. Terephthalic Acid:Exclusively used in the manufacturing of  polyester or polyethylene terephthalate  (PET).
  19. 19. Hydrochloric Acid: Mainly used in the production of other chemicals by acting as a catalyst of reactant. Also used in the pickling of steel and also in  the pharmaceutical industry.
  20. 20. Acetic Acid: Primarily used for the manufacturing of vinyl acetate monomer  and acetic anhydride.
  21. 21. Phenol: Used for manufacturing of phenolic resins, caprolacturm and bispenol­A.
