Solvent Market Analysis By Product (Hydrocarbons, Alcohols, Esters, Ketones, Chlorinated) By Application (Printing Inks, Paints And Coatings, Pharmaceuticals, Adhesives & Cosmetics) And Segment Forecasts To 2020

August 2014

Solvent is a chemical, which liquefies in a chemically diverse solute to make a solution. Solvent can be in liquid form but is also available in gaseous and solid form. There are two variants of solvents namely conventional solvents and organic solvents. Conventional solvents consist of glycol ethers, hydrocarbons, acetate esters, alcohols, chlorinated and ketones. Organic solvents are majorly used in traditional applications such as dry cleaning and also in manufacturing industries. Organic solvents are highly flammable in nature except chlorinated solvents. Some solvents cause health hazards such as toxicity in reproductive systems,...

Methyl Ethyl Ketone (MEK) Market Analysis By Application (Printing Inks, Paints & Coatings) And Segment Forecast To 2020

June 2014

Colorless liquid methyl-ethyl-ketone (MEK) is a sharp smelling organic compound which is also known as butanone. Methyl ethyl ketone is commonly used as a solvent in several applications due to its outstanding chemical properties such as high evaporation rate, high viscosity, low boiling point and high solvency. This liquid has a sweet smell suggestive of acetone and butterscotch, also befalls in trace quantities in nature and is produced on a huge scale in the industries. MEK can be formed in outdoor air by the photo-oxidation of definite air pollutants, which includes hydrocarbons and butane. It is soluble in water and is commonly...

Activated Carbon(Charcoal,Coal) Market Analysis, Market Size, Application Analysis, Regional Outlook, Competitive Strategies And Forecasts, 2014 To 2020

Activated carbon is a type of non graphitic carbon, produced through activation of carbonaceous material such as woodchips, coal, sawdust, coconut shells, lignite, bamboo, paddy husk etc. Activation process involves two stages: First carbonizing the raw material and then activate it using chemicals or steam. There are three kinds of activated carbon and are categorized based on their grades: Powdered, granular and pelletized activated carbon with the granular showing rapid market growth owing to increased application in areas of air purification. Powdered activated carbon is used in water treatment and fine chemical and food products whereas pelletized activated carbon is used for solvent recovery, catalyst applications...

P-Phenylenediamine (PPD) Market Analysis and Segment Forecasts To 2020

P-Phenylenediamine known as “coal tar dye” is an organic compound derived from benzene. It has a boiling point of 267 °C and a melting point of 145 °C.-147 °C and has a slight aroma. P-Phenylenediamine is also called as P-diamine benzene, 1-4 diamonibenzene, pelagol D, renal PF, futramine D, etc. P-Phenylenediamine has applications in engineering polymers, composites, aramid fibers, rubber chemicals, Textile dyes etc.  Additionally, PPD is used in all kind of permanent hair dyes and tattoos. PPD is used for eczema patient’s diagnostic patch testing due to its potential skin sensitizing properties. PPD dissolves in water, alcohol and ether and partially in chloroform; it is highly reactive to oxygen. It is originally colorless and turns black when...
