Isophthalic Acid Production Cost Analysis 2021

Isophthalic acid is an organic compound. The colourless solid is an isomer of phthalic acid as well as terephthalic acid. Thus, along with phthalic acid and terephthalic acid, it is one of the three isomers of benzenedicarboxylic acid, where benzene is replaced by carboxy groups at the first and third positions. Isophthalic acid is a conjugate acid of an isophthalate (1-) as well.

Isophthalic acid is manufactured by oxidising meta-xylene using oxygen. The method employs a cobalt-manganese catalyst. In laboratory conditions, chromic acid can be utilized as the oxidant. Isophthalic acid can also be produced by the fusion of potassium meta-sulphobenzoate or meta-bromobenzoate with potassium formate.

The primary commercial uses of purified isophthalic acid or PIA are for the creation of polyethylene terephthalate or better known as PET resin, as well as for the creation of unsaturated polyester resin, which is better known as UPR, and other types of coating resins as well. Thus, it finds its applications and end-uses in sectors like apparel, aerospace, automobile, building materials, and food packaging, among others.
