Pentaerythritol Production Cost Analysis 2021

Pentaerythritol is an organic compound. It is a white solid, classified as a polyol. Other names of this chemical compound are Hercules P6, mono Pentaerythritol, tetramethylolmethane, THEME, PETP, Pentaerythritol, Pentek, etc. Pentaerythritol is known as a building block for the synthesis and manufacturing of products like explosives, plastics, paints, appliances, and cosmetics, among others. 

It was the year 1891 when pentaerythritol was first discovered by a German chemist Bernhard Tollens and his student P. Wigand. It can be produced via a base-catalysed poly-addition reaction between acetaldehyde and 3 equivalents of formaldehyde, followed by a Cannizzaro reaction with the fourth equivalent of formaldehyde to produce the final  product. Pentaerythritol is also utilised as a fire retardant, like in plastics. It further makes a thick carbon barrier upon heating, protecting the surface substrate. Pentaerythritol is also one of the most common and primary active components in intumescent paints, as well as in coatings. It acts as a carbon donor as well.
