What is 4-Tert-Butylphenol?

4-tert-Butylphenol, whose English name is 4-tert-Butylphenol, is a white crystalline strong at area temperature level and stress. It is easily soluble in natural solvents such as ethanol, ether, and benzene, and is insoluble in water. 4-tert-butylphenol is a phenol by-product and has the residential properties of phenolic substances. It can neutralize with alkaline substances to form matching salts. 4-tert-butylphenol can be utilized as an intermediate in natural synthesis and pharmaceutical chemistry, and is primarily used in the synthesis and adjustment of pesticide particles and medication particles.

4-Tert-Butylphenol Uses

1) 4-Tert-Butylphenol is used in oil-soluble phenolic product. This item can be polycondensed with formaldehyde to get things with many usages. Mix 10-15% of this thing into chloroprene adhesive to acquire soluble material. This type of adhesive is primarily utilized in transportation, building, civil layout, shoemaking, and more. In regards to printing ink, it can be taken advantage of for rosin alteration, cancel printing, advanced photogravure, and so forth. In relation to securing varnishes, it can be used in coil impregnation varnishes and laminate varnishes, and so on.

( 2) Utilized in polycarbonate production as a response terminator for phosgene polycarbonate. The included amount is 1-3% of the material.

( 3) 4-Tert-Butylphenol is used to customize epoxy resin and xylene resin; as a polyvinyl chloride stabilizer, surfactant, and ultraviolet absorber.

( 4) 4-Tert-Butylphenol has antioxidant homes and can be used as a stabilizer for rubber, soap, chlorinated hydrocarbons and nitrocellulose. It is also a basic material for insect repellent (medicines), acaricides (pesticides), plant defense reps, tastes, and synthetic resins. It can also be utilized as an additive for conditioners, solvents, dyes, and paints. It can similarly be used as an element of demulsifiers for oil locations and as an additive for automobile oil.

4-Tert-Butylphenol Production Method

There are 3 procedure routes for 4-Tert-Butylphenol.
( 1) Made from phenol and isobutylene as raw materials.
Using cation exchange material as a catalyst, catalytic alkylation is done in a fluidized bed at 80 to 140 ° C, with a response web content of 60% to 70%. The resulting blended tert-butylphenol is catalytically translocated into p-tert-butylphenol with a fixed bed., and afterwards distilled under decreased stress to different excess phenol for reusing, and acquire the item p-tert-butylphenol, with a yield of more than 90% based on isobutylene.
( 2) Obtained from the reaction of benzoic acid and 2,4,4-trimethyl-2-pentene (dimeric isobutylene).
Along with getting p-tert-butylphenol, p-octylphenol is likewise co-produced during the reaction process.
( 3) Gotten from the reaction of phenol and tert-butyl alcohol.
Mix anhydrous light weight aluminum trichloride and oil ether, slowly include phenol while mixing, cool with ice water, after that gradually include tert-butyl alcohol, stir for 15 minutes after adding, after that include anhydrous aluminum trichloride in sets, and finally Mix for 4 to 5 hours, slowly include it to 1:1 hydrochloric acid, let it stand, separate the petroleum layer, essence the water layer with oil ether, combine the oil ether solution and wash it with water, different the water and recover the oil ether, and boil down under minimized pressure to obtain the completed item. When this process is made use of for industrial production, the synthesis response is accomplished at 145 to 150 ° C.
