About Dimethyl Terephthalate. 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, for the difficulty in purifying terephthalic acid to produce fibers. Currently, DMT main uses are in the production of polymers.
