Salicylic Acid
Salicylic Acid
2-Hydroxybenzoic Acid
Salicylic Acid (a.k.a. 2-Hydroxybenzoic Acid) is an aromatic acid, with a an hydroxyl group in the ortho position to the carboxyl group. Thus, this molecule combines the properties of phenols with those of aromatic carboxylic acids. Salicylic Acid appears as white crystals or fine needles, poorly soluble in water, but soluble in ether, carbon tetrachloride, benzene, toluene, alcohols, and acetone. In nature, Salicylic Acid is present from the bark of the white willow and wintergreen leaves. Industrially, it is produced by the Kolbe-Schmitt reaction, where phenol is mixed with hot aqueous caustic, yielding sodium phenate, which is then reacted with dry carbon dioxide, forming sodium salicylate. This intermediate is then acidified with mineral acid, resulting in Salicylic Acid.

Salicylic Acid Production Process - Cost Analysis | Salicylic Acid E11A

This report analyses the economics of a typical Salicylic Acid production process from phenol, sodium hydroxide, carbon dioxide, and sulfuric acid in the USA. Initially, phenol and hot aqueous caustic are reacted to produce sodium phenolate which is taken to dryness. Then, it undergoes carboxylation with carbon dioxide, yielding sodium salicylate. Finally, salicylic acid is precipitated with sulfuric acid.

Paracetamol Production from p-Nitrochlorobenzene - Cost Analysis | Paracetamol E11A
This report analyses the economics of Paracetamol production from 4-nitrochlorobenzene, sodium hydroxide, hydrogen and acetic anhydride in the USA. In the process, 4-nitrochlorobenzene reacts with sodium hydroxide producing para nitrol phenol (PNP). The PNP is then subjected to reduction, producing para amino phenol (PAP). The PAP is then acetylated to produce Paracetamol.
