DASDA Production Cost Analysis 2020
DASDA or DSD acid is a crucial intermediate to produce quality products. In appearance, it looks light yellow while in texture, it is like a powder. DASDA weighs about 370.4 gm, and it is often used as an intermediate in the manufacturing of optical whitening agents and dyestuffs. Optical brightening agents or OBAs are chemical compounds capable of absorbing light in the ultraviolet or UV and violet region of the electromagnetic spectrum, to re-emit light in the blue region by fluorescence. DASDA is utilised as a dye intermediate to produce fluorescent whitener, paper, direct dyes, and reactive dyes.
The production process of DASDA is carried out primarily by sulfonation, followed by oxidation and reduction. The raw materials that are needed for this chemical compound are para nitro toluene (PNT), oleum, sulphuric acid, caustic, chlorine, and iron powder. It should be protected from high temperatures or fire.
