Request for Real Time 1,4-Dimethylbenzene Prices:

1,4-Dimethylbenzene is a hydrocarbon with a distinct aromatic smell. It is a xylene isomer based on benzene and two methyl substituents. The commodity’s polymer derivative is called Parylene.

The compound is made by the process of catalytic reforming of naptha. It is split during the various distillations, absorption, or crystallization, as well as reactions from m-xylene, o-xylene, and ethylbenzene.

1,4-dimethylbenzene is the most commonly used dimethylbenzene. Benzene-1,4-dicarboxylic acid (terephthalic acid) is the result of oxidising 1,4-dimethylbenzene, which is then reacted with ethane-1,2-diol (ethylene glycol) in order to get the monomer that is used for polyster and polyethylene terephthalate (PET).

The worldwide leading 1,4-Dimethylbenzene producing countries are South Korea, India, Japan, Saudi Arabia, and Brunei.
