Maleic Anhydride (Maleic Anhydride) is an intermediate chemical, produced from oxidation of benzene using a special catalyst.
Maleic Anhydride is a versatile chemical that is needed in almost all fields of the chemical industry. The use of Maleic Anhydride varies due to the structure of the di carboxylic acid group, double bond reactivity between alpha and beta positions. This chemical structure and the high reactivity of the Maleic Anhydride derivative make it possible to make various types of resins and also organic reagents for various chemical transformations.
Maleic Anhydride is an important Organic Acid Anhydride. It is used in the manufacture of wide range of products like Un-saturated Polyester Resins, Alkyd Resins, Lube Oil Additives, Paper Sizing Chemicals, Insecticides and Fine Chemicals.
