Styrene is another name for Phenylethylene, an organic compound with the chemical formula C8H8. It is a colorless, oily liquid that has a sweet, distinctive odor. Phenylethylene is used in the production of a variety of materials, including plastics, rubber, and resins. It is also used as a solvent and as a raw material in producing polystyrene, a widely used plastic. As mentioned earlier, phenylethylene or styrene is considered a hazardous substance and can cause respiratory problems, skin irritation, and other health issues if not handled properly.


Several functions in the industrial and commercial fields, including:

  • 1. Raw Material: One of the primary functions of phenylethylene is that it serves as a raw material in the production of polystyrene, which is widely used in manufacturing various plastic products.
  • 2. Solvent: Phenylethylene is used as a solvent for different resins, including alkyd, vinyl, and polyester resins.
  • 3. Chemical intermediate: Phenylethylene is also used as a chemical intermediate in the production of different types of chemicals and materials, including styrene-butadiene rubber, unsaturated polyester resins, and expandable polystyrene foam.
  • 4. Fragrance: Phenylethylene's sweet, floral aroma makes it useful for the production of perfumes and flavorings.
  • 5. Adhesive: Phenylethylene is used as an adhesive in the bonding of numerous materials, including metal, plastic, and paper.
  • 6. Overall, phenylethylene is a versatile compound that has various industrial applications, particularly in the production of plastics and resins.
