Styrene (C8H8), also known as ethenylbenzene, is a colorless, organic compound that is highly flammable, volatile, and insoluble in water. It is formed by alkylating benzene with ethylene and adopted as an intermediate in the synthesis of materials utilized for manufacturing other copolymers. It can naturally be found in fruits or vegetables, cigarette smoke, and car exhaust and also be produced from petroleum and natural gas. It is used in the production of synthetic rubbers, latex, and polystyrene resins and derivatives, including polystyrene (PS), styrene-acrylonitrile (SAN), acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS), styrene-butadiene rubber (SBR), styrene-butadiene elastomers, and unsaturated polyester resin (UPS).
C8H8 has a molecular weight of 104.15 g/mol, a boiling point of 145°C (293°F), a melting point of -31.5°C (-24.7°F), and a density of 0.91 g/cm3. It is highly flammable and can form explosive mixtures with air. It is reactive and can undergo various chemical reactions, such as polymerization, oxidation, and addition reactions. It can react with acids and bases to form salts and with halogens to form halogenated derivatives.
There is an increase in the use of energy efficient insulation materials in the construction sector due to several unique physical properties and the ability to conserve the energy of styrene. This, coupled with the rising construction activities in residential and commercial spaces, represents one of the key factors driving the demand for C8H8 around the world. Moreover, C8H8 is employed in the packaging of numerous products, such as milk, fruits, meat, and other food items, to reduce product weight, prevent damage, extend shelf life, preserve product color, taste, and texture, and offer resistance to moisture. This, along with the growing need for customized packaging solutions and the increasing demand for consumer goods, is influencing the market positively. Apart from this, governing agencies of numerous countries are undertaking measures to encourage the use of environment-friendly materials and minimize carbon footprints, which, in turn, is impelling the market growth.
