Terephthaloyl Chloride

Our team of highly skilled professionals develops an exceptional quality range of Terephthaloyl chloride. It is among the highly reactive and toxic acid chlorides. The major application of this chemical compound is in the manufacturing of primarily aromatic polyamides, specialty polymers, and aramids. It is utilized as a cross-linking agent in polymer synthesis. It is also used in the making of liquid crystalline thermosets by thermal cyclotrimerization of thiocyanate compounds of ring-substituted 4-hydroxyphenyl terephthalate.
