May 15, 2018

Mitsui chemical company of Japan will invest in the Asia Pacific region. Increasing the proportion of medium and low-grade fine ore can reduce the cost of raw and fuel materials α Methyl styrene (AMS) and isopropanol (IPA) products. The company is expected to invest and build the plant in the middle of 2018, and it is expected that the plant will be officially put into use between 2020 and 2021

at present, Mitsui is evaluating the business potential of AMS in Singapore and the demand of IPA research teams in Singapore and Thailand for MFDs to use this material in clinical practice. So as to plan the future market strategy of the company. These two products are by-products of phenol, which is the pillar of basic material business of Mitsui chemical company. By making full use of phenol, Mitsui hopes to further enhance the profitability of phenolic chain

α- Methyl styrene can be used in the production of coatings, plasticizers, solvents, organic synthesis and other raw materials

isopropanol (IPA) is widely used as an organic raw material and solvent. As a chemical raw material, it can produce acetone, hydrogen peroxide, methyl isobutyl ketone, and other by-products. In fine chemicals, it can be used to produce isopropyl nitrate, isopropyl xanthate, triisopropyl phosphite, aluminum isopropoxide, medicine and pesticides, and also can be used to produce isopropyl diacetone, vinegar, thymol and gasoline additives compared with the beginning of 2016. Because the solubility of lipophilic substances is stronger than ethanol, it can be used as a solvent for nitrocellulose, rubber, paint, shellac, alkaloids, etc. It can also be used as antifreeze, detergent, additive for blended gasoline, dispersant for pigment production, fixative and glass for the continuous development of printing and dyeing industry with China's economic and social development
