About Ethylbenzene. Ethylbenzene (a.k.a. EB, Phenylethane) is a colorless liquid, insoluble in water and miscible with most organic solvents. It appears naturally in petroleum and coal tar. It is mainly used to produce styrene, used extensively to produce important polymers such as SBR, ABS, SAN, SB and unsaturated polyester resins.
Chemical Formula. C6H5CH2CH3
Commercial Grades. Purities between 99.0 and 99.5%. It may contain small amounts of benzene (0.1-0.3 wt%), toluene (0.1-0.3 wt%), ρ-xylene (about 0.2 wt%), m-xylene (about 0.2 wt%), ο-xylene and cumene (about 0.02 wt%).
Uses. Production of styrene, gasoline anti-knock agent, pesticides, paints, inks, recovery of natural gas.
- Benzene + ethylene (Friedel-Crafts alkylation)
- Xylene, mixed (superfractionation)

Derivatives. m-Ethylphenol; p-ethylphenol; phenethyl alcohol; 1-phenylethanol; propylene oxide; styrene.
Methodology. The chemicals pricing data Intratec provides its customers with is obtained from the collection/refining of foreign trade data officially reported by the respective countries. Usually, such information is reported by governmental agencies and/or institutions related to foreign trade, or by statistical surveys conducted by countries/organizations.
