Pentaerythritol is an organic compound with the formula C (CH2OH)4. Classified as a polyol, it is a white solid. Pentaerythritol is a building block for the synthesis and production of explosives, plastics, paints, appliances, cosmetics, and many other commercial products.
Pentaerythritol was selected as a candidate material in the temperature range below 200°C. It is a material with several interesting features. Its heat of crystalline transition is as large as the heat of fusion of ice and it is not costly, because it is produced on a relatively large scale as a chemical commodity.
Pentaerythritol or 2, 2-bis (hydroxymethyl)propane-1,3-diol is an odorless white, crystalline, solid organic compound. It is tetrahydric neopentyl alcohol with chemical formula C5H12O4 and is non-hygroscopic, non-volatile, and stable in air. It is predominantly used in the surface coating industries.
The global pentaerythritol market includes rapid industrialization, increasing automotive production and sales, and rising building & construction activities across the globe. Furthermore, increasing automotive production along with rising application scope such as surface coating and lubricants is estimated to propel the growth of the market.
Pentaerythritol is an alcohol containing four hydroxyl groups obtained from the aldol condensation process of formaldehyde and acetaldehyde. Pentaerythritol is an odorless, light yellow crystalline powder soluble in water. Pentaerythritol has different derivatives such as pentaerythritol esters, pentaerythritol tetranitrate, pentaerythritol tri-acrylate and dipentaerythritol.
The global pentaerythritol market is categorized on the basis of application, and region. On the basis of the application, the market is categorized into paints & coatings, plasticizers, lubricants, adhesive & sealant, inks, varnishes, and others.
