The main use of styrene is as a monomer for synthetic rubber and plastics, which is used to produce styrene-butadiene rubber, polystyrene, and styrofoam. It is also used in copolymerization with other monomers to produce engineering plastics for many different applications. For example, ABS resin is obtained by copolymerization with acrylonitrile and butadiene, and is widely used in various household appliances and industries. The SAN obtained by copolymerization with acrylonitrile is an impact-resistant and bright-colored resin; it is obtained by copolymerization with butadiene. SBS is a thermoplastic rubber widely used as a modifier for polyvinyl chloride and polypropylene. Styrene is mainly used in the production of styrene resin and styrene-butadiene rubber. It is also one of the raw materials for the production of ion exchange resins and pharmaceuticals. In addition, styrene can also be used in pharmaceuticals, dyes, pesticides and mineral processing industries.
A type of styrene or aromatic hydrocarbon. Present in Suhe balsam (a natural flavor). A colorless, special aroma liquid. It is mainly made of ethylbenzene and is an important monomer of polymers. Styrene is self-polymerized to form a polystyrene resin, which is also copolymerized with other unsaturated compounds to form various products such as synthetic rubber and resin.
