Acetic anhydride is the simplest isolable anhydride of a carboxylic acid and is most commonly used as a reagent in organic synthesis. It is most widely used for the conversion of cellulose to cellulose acetate, which is a component of photographic film and other coated materials and is used in the manufacture of cigarette filters. It is also used in the production of aspirin and as a wood preservative to make a longer-lasting timber.
Procurement Resource provides an in-depth cost analysis of Acetic Anhydride production. The report incorporates the manufacturing process with detailed process and material flow, capital investment, operating costs along with financial expenses and depreciation charges. The study is based on the latest prices and other economic data available. We also offer additional analysis of the report with detailed breakdown of all cost components (Capital Investment Details, Production Cost Details, Economics for another Plant Location, Dynamic Cost Model).
The report provides comprehensive production cost analysis of acetic anhydride by the Eastman process that involves reacting a mixture of methyl acetate and carbon monoxide in the presence of a rhodium catalyst and one or more promoters.
The report revolves around cost analysis of etidronic acid by reacting phosphorus trichloride with acetic anhydride in water which converts to phosphorus acid and then reacts with the acetic anhydride in the vessel.
This report presents an analysis of capital and operating costs of a -based industrial plant. For those interested in economic assessments considering other plant locations, Procurement Resource offers optional analyses that complement this report.
