Key Reactions for the Petrochemical Industry

By Scott Jenkins |

A handful of compounds derived from natural gas and crude petroleum are converted into a vast array of industrial petrochemicals.

This one-page reference provides an overview of the chemical routes and reactions required to manufacture these fundamental petrochemicals, as well as reactions for generating some of their immediate chemical derivatives.
