Production Process

  • Production of DSBP from 4,4- bis(chloromethyl) biphenyl 

In this process, 4,4- bis(chloromethyl) biphenyl, obtained from the reaction between biphenyl and formaldehyde, is utilised to produce DSBP. 4,4- bis(chloromethyl) biphenyl is heated at a temperature between 117 and 119oC in the presence of trimethyl phosphite to give 4,4- bis(dimethoxyphosphonomethyl)biphenyl and methyl chloride, which finally reacts with benzaldehyde sulphonic acid to form DSBP.
