Storage method

This product should be stored in a sealed, cool, dry place.

Synthesis method

1. (1) Cyclohexenylcyclohexanone is obtained by dehydrogenation in the presence of aluminum oxide; (2) 2-aminobiphenyl is reacted with sodium nitrite in sulfuric acid to obtain Diazotization produces biphenyl diazonium salt, which is then hydrolyzed.

2. Production of phenol by sulfonation method

3.(1) Use the cyclohexanone route to prepare OPP, that is, using cyclohexanone as raw material, condensation and dehydration under acid catalysis to obtain the dimerization intermediate 2-(1-cyclohexenyl)cyclohexanone and 2-cyclohexylalkylenecyclohexanone are synthesized by dehydrogenation to o-phenylphenol. (2) Obtain a mixture of o-phenylphenol and p-phenylphenol from the by-product of phenol production by the sulfonation method, heat it and dissolve it in trichlorethylene, and precipitate para-phenylphenol crystals after cooling, and then centrifuge and filter. The solid is dried to obtain phenylphenol. After the mother liquor is washed with sodium carbonate solution, dilute sodium hydroxide is added to neutralize it, and then acidified to obtain o-phenylphenol.

4. Obtain o-phenylphenol and p-phenylphenol from the by-products of phenol production by sulfonation method The mixture is heated and dissolved in trichlorethylene. After cooling, p-phenylphenol crystals precipitate. After centrifugal filtration, the solid is dried to obtain p-phenylphenol. After the mother liquor is washed with sodium carbonate solution, dilute sodium hydroxide is added to neutralize it, and then acidified to obtain o-phenylphenol.

5. Tobacco: FC, 40.


1. This product is used as an antifungal agent for plastics and rubber. It is also used as a carrier for carrier dyeing of hydrophobic synthetic fibers such as polyester and polyester, and as a heat stabilizer, surfactant, bactericidal preservative, and dye intermediate for plastics. This product and its sodium salt have high herbicidal activity, broad-spectrum sterilization and mildew removal capabilities, and are low-toxic and tasteless. They are good preservatives and can be used to prevent mildew and preserve fruits and vegetables, especially for citrus. It can also be used to treat lemons, pineapples, melons, fruits, pears, peaches, tomatoes, cucumbers, etc. to minimize rot. Countries such as the United Kingdom, the United States, and Canada are allowed to use a wider range of fruits, including apples. This product and its sodium salt can also be used as antiseptic and bactericidal agents in cosmetics, wood, leather, fiber and paper, etc. The general concentration is 0.15% to 1.5%. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) allows the use of nearly 200 varieties of antiseptic soaps, antiseptic and deodorant lotions, and antiseptic preservatives with o-phenylphenol or its sodium salt as the main ingredient, and considers such products to be non-toxic. , the annual consumption of o-phenylphenol in this field alone exceeds 1 million pounds (1 pound = 0.45359237kg).
