Properties and stability

Non-flammable, non-corrosive, and has good storage stability.

Storage method

Packed in iron drums, sealed and dryStore dry.

Synthesis method

Using resorcinol methylation method. Using resorcinol as raw material, methylation reaction is carried out with dimethyl sulfate in the presence of sodium hydroxide catalyst, and then the oil vapor is separated, distilled, and then reacted with benzoyl chloride in the presence of aluminum trichloride and chlorobenzene. , finally obtained by hydrolysis, distillation, cooling, decolorization, centrifugation and drying.


This product is a UV absorber that can effectively absorb ultraviolet light of 290-400nm, but hardly absorbs visible light, so it is used in light-colored plastic products. It can be used in paints and various plastics, such as cellulose acetate, nitrocellulose, polyvinyl chloride, chlorinated polyvinyl chloride, polystyrene, ABS and polyester, unsaturated polyester, etc. The general dosage of this product is 0.1 to 1.5 parts.

This product is a broad-spectrum ultraviolet absorber with the advantages of high absorption rate, non-toxicity, non-teratogenic effect, and good stability to light and heat. This product can absorb both UV-A and UV-B. It is a Class I sunscreen approved by the U.S. FDA. It is used more frequently in the United States and Europe. It is widely used in sunscreen cosmetics such as sunscreen ointments, creams, honeys, lotions, and oils. It is also It can be used as an anti-discoloration agent for products that change color due to photosensitivity.
