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 in the production of 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%)
