Resorcinol Production Cost Report

Resorcinol is an organic compound that is widely used as an antiseptic and disinfectant to treat various skin disorders. It serves as a disinfectant in some pharmaceutical products and is a key ingredient in dermatologic medications for skin conditions like acne, eczema, corns, calluses, and warts. It aids in the removal of hard, rough, and scaly skin. Its unique structural characteristics make it a valuable component in the manufacturing of drugs for effective skin treatment.

Beyond pharmaceutical applications, Resorcinol is used in the production of certain hair dyes, wood glue, and especially rubber adhesives. Being waterproof, it's essential in creating adhesives robust enough for crafting boats designed for humid environments. The tire industry extensively uses Resorcinol-based rubber adhesives to bond materials like fiberglass, nylon, rayon, and steel, making them suitable for applications in hydraulic hoses, conveyor belts, and more.

The market for resorcinol is majorly driven by its applications in the pharmaceutical industries, as it is extensively used in the manufacture of various topical pharmaceutical products for the treatment of skin infections such as acne, corns, eczema, warts, etc., which contributes to its market expansion. It is also extensively used in rubber adhesives as a bonding material for rayon, nylon, or steel with natural or synthetic rubber compositions, which further propels its demand in the tire industry. Moreover, it also serves as a raw material for reinforced rubber product adhesion systems, which significantly contributes to its market growth and amplifies its demand in the rubber industry. Additionally, the availability and cost of production of resorcinol’s feedstock (benzene and propylene), resorcinol market prices, distribution (including trading and shipping), logistics, environmental regulations, safety standards, etc., are some of the elements that influence an industrial resorcinol procurement.

Raw Material for Resorcinol Production

According to the Resorcinol manufacturing plant project report, the major raw materials for Resorcinol production include Benzene-Propylene.

Manufacturing Process of Resorcinol

The extensive Resorcinol production cost report consists of the following industrial manufacturing process:

  • Production by Hock Rearrangement of 1,3-Diisopropyl Benzene and Oxidation Reaction: Dialkylation of benzene and propylene is the first step in the process, which yields 1,3-diisopropyl benzene. After that, the product undergoes a Hock rearrangement reaction, where it oxidizes to yield acetone and resorcinol as the end products.

Resorcinol is a white crystalline solid chemical compound composed of six carbon, six hydrogen, and two oxygen atoms. Also known as resorcin or m-dihydroxybenzene, it is one of the three isomers of benzenediol. Soluble in water, it also dissolves in chemical solvents such as ether and glycerol and is slightly soluble in chloroform. This compound takes the form of white needle-like crystals, which turn pink when exposed to air, light, or in the presence of iron.

It has a faint odor and a sweet taste that turns bitter. Its density is around 1.28 g/cm^3, and its boiling and melting points are approximately 280°C and 109.8°C, respectively. Resorcinol volatilizes at lower temperatures and exhibits slight volatility with steam. It's hygroscopic and remains stable under standard storage conditions but decomposes upon heating, releasing acrid smoke and irritating fumes.
