Diphenyl Carbonate
Diphenyl Carbonate
DPC
Phenyl Carbonate
Diphenyl Carbonate (a.k.a. DPC, Phenyl Carbonate) is a phenol derivative, classified as an acyclic carbonate ester. It appears as a white crystalline solid, insoluble in water, but soluble in acetone, hot alcohol, benzene, carbon tetrachloride, ether, glacial acetic acid and other organic solvents. The main production route of DPC is the phosgenation of phenol, in the presence of catalysts of salts of Aluminum, Titanium, Tin, Zinc, or Iron. Another possible route, one that is being studied and otimized, is the oxidative carbonylation of phenol, carried out in the presence of paladium compounds.
The uses and applications of Diphenyl Carbonate may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Diphenyl Carbonate are technical grade; reagent grade (98% purity); 99% purity; and 99.5% purity.

Updated Reports Examining Diphenyl Carbonate Manufacturing Costs

Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand Commodity Cost of Production reports analyzing the costs of Diphenyl Carbonate manufacturing processes. Each report describes an industrial plant based on a specific Diphenyl Carbonate process. The report also presents an independent analysis of the costs of Diphenyl Carbonate production, encompassing plant capital costs (capex) and plant operating costs (opex). All reports are based on the most recent economic data available (Q4 2023).

Diphenyl Carbonate from Phosgene and Phenol

This report presents the economics of Diphenyl Carbonate (DPC) production from phosgene and phenol using a typical interfacial process. The economic assessment assumes a plant located in the United States.

Details: 130 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   107 pages   From $799 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report DPC E11A target a 130 kta (kilometric tons per annum) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

Diphenyl Carbonate from Ethylene Oxide and Phenol

This study reviews the costs associated with Diphenyl Carbonate (DPC) production from ethylene oxide and phenol in the United States. The process examined is similar to Asahi Kasei process, which dimethyl carbonate (DMC) intermediate is initially produced from ethylene oxide and methanol. Then, the DMC reacts with phenol to produce phenylmethyl carbonate, followed by disproportionation to DPC.

The cost analyses presented in the report DPC E21A target a 130 kta (kilometric tons per annum) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

Diphenyl Carbonate from Phenol and Methanol (DMO Intermediate)

This report presents a techno-economic study about Diphenyl Carbonate (DPC) production from phenol and methanol in the United States. This process is similar to Ube process. Initially, methanol is submitted to oxidative coupling to produce dimethyl oxalate (DMO). The DMO is then transesterified with phenol to diphenyl oxalate, which undergoes decarbonylation to DPC.

The cost analyses presented in the report DPC E31A target a 130 kta (kilometric tons per annum) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

Diphenyl Carbonate from Phenol and Methanol (DMC Intermediate)

It presents the economics of Diphenyl Carbonate (DPC) production from phenol and methanol using a process similar to the one proposed by SABIC, located in the United States. In this process, methanol undergoes an oxidative carbonylation to form dimethyl carbonate (DMC). It reacts with phenol to produce phenylmethyl carbonate, followed by disproportionation to DPC.

The cost analyses presented in the report DPC E41A target a 130 kta (kilometric tons per annum) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

Diphenyl Carbonate Production from Phenol and Carbon Monoxide

This feasibility study reviews Diphenyl Carbonate (DPC) production from phenol. The process under analysis is an oxidative carbonylation process, which involves the direct reaction of phenol with carbon monoxide to form DPC. The economic analysis is based on a plant constructed in the United States.

Details: 130 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   107 pages   From $999 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report DPC E51A target a 130 kta (kilometric tons per annum) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

Intratec Methodology. Intratec distilled its expertise, gained from more than a decade of supporting companies worldwide in the analysis of commodities markets and process economics, and developed a consistent report development methodology.

The methodology ensures a holistic, coherent, and consistent techno-economic evaluation, guiding the development of a report that allows readers to fully understand a specific process technology for the production of a commodity. In addition to being based on a common methodology, all Intratec reports that approach industrial processes have a common structure, i.e., indexes, tables and charts share similar standards. This ensures that Intratec’s readers know upfront what they will get and, more than that, will be able to compare technologies addressed in different reports.

Our methodology is continuously tested and proven by the many corporations involved with the commodities sector, R&D centers, EPC companies, financial institutions and government agencies that rely on our reports.
