Diethyl phthalate is a colorless liquid that is clear and slightly denser than water. Diethyl phthalate is not easily flammable. In the industry, diethyl phthalate is also known as solvanol. Diethyl phthalate is typically synthesized via the Ald-Ox or Oxo processes. Diethyl phthalate can also be synthesized by reacting phthalic anhydride with ethanol in presence of concentrated sulfuric acid as a catalyst. Diethyl phthalate purity typically ranges from 98% to 99.5%


  • Increasing use of diethyl phthalate to produce plasticizers for automotive industry

In today’s world, there is huge need to decrease weight and fuel usage. Therefore, diethyl phthalates are used in automotive plastics as one of the primary materials. One-third part of an average automotive vehicle is made up of plastic which include dashboards, engine covers, seating, interior wall panels, carburetors, handles, cable insulation, truck bed liners and many others. Polypropylene, polyvinyl chloride, polystyrene, polycarbonate and polyethylene are some of the plastics which are applied in building automotive vehicles. Diethyl phthalate is one of the widely used plasticizers to make these plastics and polymers. They make the plastic more flexible. Moreover, DEP is a biodegradable material and is also used in the manufacturing of automotive parts and tubes used in medical treatment and diagnostics.

  • Expansion of the packaging industry

In packaging industry, bubble wrap and plastic films are few of the packaging materials used. To manufacture such materials plasticizers such as diethyl phthalate is effectively used in large quantities. Diethyl phthalate is used as a plasticizer for cellulose ester plastic films and sheets such as photographic, blister packaging, and tape applications and molded and extruded articles. Therefore, the demand of diethyl phthalate will rise in the coming years as the packaging industry expands, which is expected to provide lucrative opportunities for the growth of the Asia-Pacific diethyl phthalate market.
