About Maleic Anhydride
Maleic anhydride is flammable, colorless, and has an acrid odor. It is produced from the oxidation of n-butane and benzene. The process of conversion of n-butane and benzene is through fixed bed, fluidized bed, and moving bed or catalyst bed at high temperatures. Maleic anhydride is used in products ranging from resin materials to pesticide sprays. Maleic anhydride is an important intermediate in the fine chemical industry, particularly in the manufacture of lubricating oil and agricultural chemicals additives. It is also used as a component of various copolymers in the engineering polymers sector. The fundamental process of maleic anhydride production includes feed preparation, oxidation reaction, product separation, product purification, and energy recovery.
