Vinylbenzene Production Cost Reports

Chemicals

Vinylbenzene, also known as styrene or ethenylbenzene, is an organic compound. This derivative of benzene is a colourless and oily liquid that evaporates easily. Moreover, it has a sweet smell, but high concentrations may give a less pleasant odour. Vinylbenzene is known as the precursor to polystyrene and several copolymers. It plays a crucial role in the chemical production of latex, synthetic rubber, and other polystyrene resins. 

A common way to manufacture vinylbenzene is through the dehydrogenation of ethylbenzene. Benzene and ethylene are first compressed and sent to a reactor to manufacture vinylbenzene along with Friedel–Crafts catalyst at approximately 95 °C. The product mixture is then also fed into a distillation column to be separated into vinylbenzene, benzene, and polyethylbenzenes. After the partial distillation, the vinylbenzene is fed out with a high purity of over 99% at 136 °C, which is its boiling point. Vinylbenzene is also co-produced for the industry in a method known as POSM or SM/PO (Shell) for styrene monomer/propylene oxide. In this method, vinylbenzene is treated with oxygen to form the ethylbenzene hydroperoxide.

Procurement Resource provides an in-depth cost analysis of Vinylbenzene production.
