New method can efficiently transform phenol to a key ingredient for manufacturing food preservatives, pharmaceuticals, and polymers

New Delhi, February 12, 2022: Indian researchers have found that electrolysis using surface-modified electrodes for efficient large-scale transformation of phenol to 1,4 hydroquinone used as intermediate in the manufacturing of food preservatives, pharmaceuticals, dyes, polymers. India currently imports 1,4 hydroquinone at a heavy cost due to lack of efficient processes for conversion of phenol to 1,4 […]
