Styrene (a.k.a. Vinylbenzene, Ethenylbenzene, Phenylethene) is an organic compound, the simplest monomer in the aromatic hydrocarbon class. It is a colorless, oily liquid, with aromatic odor, insoluble in water, but soluble in most organic compounds. It was first isolated in the nineteenth century; however, it only began being industrially commercialized in the 1930s, with the development of the dehydrogenation process, which allowed for styrene’s polymerization. Currently, styrene is one of the most important aromatic members, being by far the most commercialized.
