)-- Phenol is an aromatic organic compound which is widely used as a precursor or an intermediate in the chemical industry. Represented by the chemical formula C6H5OH, phenol is similar to alcohols as the phenyl group (C6H5) in it is bonded to a hydroxyl group (OH). The stronger hydrogen bonding in phenol enhances its solubility and results in a higher melting and boiling point compared to other hydrocarbons with similar molecular weight. Phenol was first isolated from coal tars in the 1850’s and is currently produced by the oxidation of cumene. This process is advantageous over other production processes such as the Dow process as it gives another valuable industrial chemical- acetone.
Phenol is used in the production of a number of chemicals like- bisphenol-A (BPA), phenolic resins, caprolactam, alkylphenols, aniline, 2,6-xylenol, etc. The first three derivatives- bisphenol-A (BPA), phenolic resins and caprolactam currently consume the majority of its total global production. BPA end applications include automotive parts, optical media, glazing/sheeting, etc. Phenolic resins are primarily used as a binder or coating for oriented strand boards (OSB) or for plywood. In addition, they are used for circuit boards as well as molded products. Caprolactam, the third biggest derivative of phenol is used in textiles, carpets, engineered plastics, packaging and industrial filament applications. Another major factor driving the global phenol market is the rising demand for wind turbines with their blades made up of epoxy resins that are derived from phenol.
