Organic Intermediate(Intermediates) originally referred to the intermediate products produced in the process of using coal tar or petroleum products as raw materials to synthesize chemical products such as spices, dyes, resins, drugs, plasticizers, and rubber accelerators. Now generally refers to various intermediate products obtained in the process of organic synthesis.
Product CategoryAn intermediate refers to a semi-finished product, which can be produced from an intermediate to an intermediate product in the production of a specific product, for example, from an intermediate to produce a product, thereby reducing costs.
Organic Intermediate are formed from cyclic compounds such as benzene, naphthalene, anthracene, etc. through sulfonation, alkali fusion, nitration, reduction and other reactions. For example, benzene can be nitrated to nitrobenzene and then reduced to aniline, which can be chemically processed into dyes, drugs, vulcanization accelerators, etc. Nitrobenzene and aniline are both intermediates.
There are also acyclic compounds such as methane, acetylene, propylene, butane, butene, etc. through dehydrogenation, polymerization, halogenation, hydrolysis and other reactions. For example, butane or butene can be dehydrogenated to butadiene, which can be chemically processed into synthetic rubbers and synthetic fibers. Butadiene is an intermediate.
Product UsageOrganic Intermediate products have a wide range of uses and can be divided into three aspects.
The first is the raw material used to produce polymeric chemicals, that is, monomers for polymerization reactions.
The second is raw materials used in other organic chemical industries, including fine chemicals.
The third is solvents, refrigerants, antifreeze, gas adsorbents, etc.
ConceptThe so-called pharmaceutical intermediates are actually some chemical raw materials or chemical products used in the process of drug synthesis.
This kind of chemical product does not require a pharmaceutical production license and can be produced in an ordinary chemical plant. As long as it reaches a certain level, it can be used for the synthesis of pharmaceuticals.
ApplicationPharmaceutical production requires a large number of special chemicals. Most of these chemicals were originally produced by the pharmaceutical industry. However, with the deepening of social division of labor and the advancement of production technology, the pharmaceutical industry has transferred some pharmaceutical intermediates to chemical companies for production.
Pharmaceutical intermediates are fine chemical products, and the production of pharmaceutical intermediates has become a major industry in the international chemical industry.
In cell biology, the intermediate refers to the middle part of the spindle that is gradually disintegrated near the equatorial plane in the late stage of cell division. The surrounding cytoplasm concentration increases and fills the entire equatorial plane. This thickened area is called the intermediate.
The Organic Intermediate MarketIn recent years, the rapid development of the global fine chemical industry has laid a solid foundation for the development of organic Intermediate. At the same time, the wide application of chemical intermediates in various end-uses such as agriculture, pharmaceuticals, paints and coatings has brought about the global demand for chemical intermediates. Rapid growth.
The application fields of global chemical intermediates are wide, and the rapid growth of various application fields, mainly medicine and agriculture, has jointly promoted the growth of global organic Intermediate demand.
Affected by the new crown epidemic in 2020, the growth rate of the global chemical intermediates market has slowed down. It is forward-looking that the global chemical intermediates market will be about 110 billion U.S. dollars in 2020, and it will continue to increase in 2021.
From the perspective of the development prospects of global chemical intermediates, most parts of the world are accelerating urban construction and the scale of the construction industry continues to expand, which promotes the growth of demand for paints and coatings, and drives the increase in the demand for related dye chemical intermediates.
Agricultural development is an important proposition for all countries in the world. The application of agricultural chemical products is inseparable from ensuring food supply. The demand for agricultural chemical products and chemical intermediates such as pesticides is huge.
At the same time, the rapid development of the global pharmaceutical industry has promoted an increase in the demand for the use of chemical intermediates in drug production.
Generally speaking, the application fields of global chemical intermediates are wide, and the rapid growth of various application fields has jointly promoted the growth of global chemical intermediates demand and also enriched the product categories of chemical intermediates.It is estimated that by 2026, the global Organic Intermediate market will grow to 184.5 billion U.S. dollars.
