Bronopol Production Cost Analysis 2020

Bronopol is a well-known example of an organic compound that is often utilised as an antimicrobial ointment. In appearance, it is a white solid, although some of the commercial samples appear yellow. The first reported synthesis of bronopol happened in the year 1897. The Boots Company PLC invented Bronopol in the early 1960s, and the first applications of this chemical solvent were used as a preservative for pharmaceuticals firm. 

Having a low mammalian toxicity at in-use levels as well as having high activity against bacteria, especially Gram-negative species, bronopol became prevalent as a preservative in numerous consumer products like shampoos as well as in cosmetics. It was widely adopted as an antimicrobial in other commercial environments like the oil exploration, paper mills, and production facilities, as well as cooling water disinfection plants. Bronopol is manufactured by the bromination of di(hydroxymethyl)nitromethane that is extracted from nitromethane by a nitroaldol reaction. Bronopol is utilised in consumer products as an active preservative agent, as well as a wide variety of commercial applications.
