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.


The displayed pricing data is derived through weighted average purchase price, including contract and spot transactions at the specified locations unless otherwise stated.
