Dimethyl Terephthalate (a.k.a. DMT) is an organic compound, in the aromatic ester class, specifically classified as a diester. It is a white salt, with faint ester odor, insoluble in water, but soluble in most organic solvents. It began to be industrially produced in the end of the 1960s, due to the difficulty of purifying terephthalic acid to produce fibers.
