Cumene Production Cost Report

Cumene is the common name for isopropylbenzene, an organic compound. It is an alkylbenzene where the one hydrogen atom of benzene is replaced by an isopropyl group. It is found in crude oil and refined fuels, and is a component of processed high-octane gasoline.

Cumene looks like a clear, colourless liquid with a sharp, penetrating aromatic odour. It is less dense than water and is insoluble in it; however, it is miscible with ethanol, ethyl ether, acetone, benzene, petroleum ether, and carbon tetrachloride. Its Vapors are heavier than air. It is slightly toxic upon inhalation, ingestion and skin absorption. It has a Flash point of 115 °F.

It is a volatile liquid with a boiling and melting point of152.4 °C and −141 °C, respectively.

Cumene is mainly used to produce plastic or works as a solvent for paints, lacquer, and enamel. It is employed in several petroleum products. Furthermore, it has several end-uses owing to its distinct properties, such as its use in household products, pesticides, etc. It is also abundantly used to make phenol and acetone, which are further used in plastic production.

As an intermediate in the industry, it is used to produce di cumyl peroxide. It also facilitates the manufacturing of many products like detergents, di-isopropylbenzene, acetophenone, α-methyl styrene, and styrene. Also, it finds use as a catalyst in the synthesis of acrylic and polyester-type resins. Additionally, in small quantities, it works like a solvent in paints, lacquers, and enamel production.
