About Styrene:

Styrene is an organic compound derived from benzene. In appearance, it is a colourless oily liquid that evaporates quickly while leaving behind a sweet smell. Styrene is often composed of other chemicals that give it a sharp, unpleasant smell. It dissolves in some liquids but doesn't dissolve easily in water. It tends to polymerise readily at temperatures of more than 90°C. Styrene monomer finds wide applications in both the plastics and the synthetic rubber industries.

Chemical Formula of Styrene:

  • C8H8

Production Processes:     

  • Production of Styrene via Dehydrogenation of Ethylbenzene; from Benzene and Ethane; and from Toluene and Methanol

Styrene is produced predominately from ethylbenzene. In this process, ethylbenzene is dehydrogenated using superheated steam (up to 600°C) in the presence of an iron (III) oxide catalyst. Typical catalysts are based on ferric oxide with the additives chromia (Cr2O3) (stabiliser) and potassium oxide (coke retardant).
