Naphthalene Derivatives are popular organic substance due to its excellent insect repellent
Naphthalene Derivatives is the modern alternative to mothballs, though they come in the form of a
container. Naphthalene is an organic substance that is present in a fine white crystal powder-like
form quite frequently. It is most commonly known as the principal ingredient of mothballs.
Naphthalene derivatives are synthesized from naphthalene and need naphthalene derivatives as an
initial precursor before synthesis.
Aromatase is an essential enzyme in plants, animals, and even in some types of bacteria. Phthaldiol,
one of the Asia pacific group of aromatic amines, converts naphthalene derivatives into the aromatic
substances known as phthalic anhydride or phthalate. It was first discovered in the 1970s when the
global naphthalene derivatives market was being developed. Phthalate is known to have a strong
odor, which is why it has become widely used in the global naphthalene derivatives market.
Several different types of amines are converted to phthalate. One of them is the aromatic
naphthalene derivative known as carbofuran. This chemical is commonly used in mothball and
carbofuran candles, and its odor has been known to be intensely unpleasant to humans. It has been
found that certain species of bacteria are also unable to tolerate the smell of carbofuran. Other
naphthalene derivatives are derived from crude oil, and these are known to have low odor levels.
In recent years, the demand for petroleum products with a low to medium odor level has increased.
There has been increasing use of naphthalene derivatives as they are known to have excellent insect
repellent properties. There are reports that the use of insect repellents containing this chemical has
significantly reduced the spraying activity of insects in residential areas.
As a result of the emerging demand, the demand for naphthalene derivatives in the Asia Pacific
countries has also increased. The
