About Maleic Anhydride. Maleic Anhydride (a.k.a. MAN) is an organic compound, in the acid anhydride class. At room temperature, it is a white crystalline solid, with an acrid odor, soluble in water and in most organic solvents. MAN melts at 52.8ºC. It is a multifunctional chemical intermediate in several chemical routes. Its major use is in the production of unsaturared polyester resins (UPR).
Chemical Formula. C4H2O3
Commercial Grades. White briquettes or molten liquid
Uses. Maleic Anhydride is a multifunctional chemical intermediate with applications in several fields of chemical industry. Its major end use is as feedstock in the production of unsaturated polyester resins (UPR). These resins are used both in glass-reinforced and in unreinforced applications. The UPR end uses includes a wide range of applications in construction, marine and automobile industries. In addition, Maleic Anhydride can also be used as raw material in the production of 1,4-butanediol (BDO), gamma- butyrolactone and tetrahydrofuran (THF). It is important to highlight that BDO is one of the world’s fastest growing chemicals in the last years.
