The Mesitylene (CAS 108-67-8) Market Research Report includes mesitylene description, covers its application areas and related patterns.
For an organic solvent, mesitylene (Aldrich, 98%), benzyl ether (Aldrich, 98%) and isopropanol (Aldrich, 99%) and 1-methylimidazole (Acros, 99%) were used for IPN hydrogenation.
Given the solvents with a lower boiling point, mesitylene (163[degrees]C) and 2-propanol (82[degrees]C), the MXDA yield decreased with reaction temperature.
Interestingly, with further increased temperatures, the MXDA yield over mesitylene and isopropanol was decreased due to not only amine cleavage but also the formation of bulky molecules by polymerization (see Table 2).
