2,3,5-Trimethyl Hydroquinone CAS 700-13-0 is the main ring of vitamin E, which is condensed with Isophytol to produce vitamin E.
At present, China has become the second largest country in feed production in the world. If the amount of vitamin E in animal feed is added according to the average level of foreign countries, it will consume nearly 2000t of vitamin E every year. According to China's feed industry planning, the demand for synthetic vitamin E in 2005 was about 2500t.And in the future, China's demand for vitamin E for medicine, food and cosmetics will grow steadily. So the future market for 2, 3, 5-trimethyl-hydroquinone will not be saturated for the next decade or two. The development of this project has broad application prospects.
Vitamin E is not only used as an additive in medicine, feed, food and cosmetics, but also is increasingly used in industry, such as as an industrial antioxidant, non-toxic and biodegradable stabilizer in polyolefin. At present, the demand for vitamin E in domestic and foreign markets has increased sharply. However, natural vitamin E is very limited, so timely production and expansion of vitamin E production will bring better economic benefits.
