This report presents the economics and process designs for the manufacture of four aprotic solvents:
- dimethyl sulfoxide.
Each solvent has numerous uses; however, the main applications are in the oil refining industry and as solvents in plastics and fiber production.
Our report includes a review of the patent literature related to the four solvents. Additionally, we provide an overview of the industry status and the chemistry related to each of the manufacturing processes.
This report should prove useful not only to those who produce these materials but also to those who purchase them.
