Seattle, WA -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/15/2019 -- Mesitylene is also reffered to as 1, 3, 5-trimethylbenzene, it is a derivative of benzene with three methyl substituents positioned symmetrically around the benzene ring. It is a colorless liquid, insoluble in water with a sweet aromatic odor. This compound is produced by methyl alkylation of xylene over solid acid catalyst process.
Traditionally it was extracted from coal tar and it has aromatic hydrogen atoms of mesitylene in identical chemical shift environments. Therefore, these three atoms only give a single peak at 6.8 ppm. Mesitylene is thus, used as an internal standard in NMR samples that contain aromatic protons.
Growing various applications of mesitylene in various end-use industries is projected to boost demand for mesitylene over the forecast period. For instance, mesitylene is used as precursor to diverse fine chemicals. It is oxidized by trifluoroperacetic acid to produce mesitol, which is used to prevent problems with pitch, to fix basic dyestuff and to reduce mottling. Uvitic acid is obtained by oxidizing mesitylene. It is also used as an additive and component of some avgas (aviation gasoline) blends. Moreover, mesitylene is used as a specialty solvent in the laboratory and can be act as a ligand in organometallic chemistry, such as the organomolybdenum complex.

Other application such as it is used as an intermediate in various chemical reactions such as mesitylene is mainly used as a precursor to 2, 4, 6-trimethylaniline, a precursor to colorants. Moreover, color and dyestuff market is rapidly expanding industry owing to demand from numerous end-use industries. According to Coherent Market Insights (CMI), the global dyestuff market for cotton alone was valued at US$ 2.21 billion (revenue) and 830.7 kilo tons (volume) in 2016. Therefore, braode range of applications of pigments and colorants in the textile, food and beverages, and automotive industries is fueling the demand for raw material. This is expected to boost demand for reagents for colorants such as mesitylene, hence boosting the market growth of the mesitylene market.
On the other hand its toxicity and hazards impacts on animals is expected to hamper the market growth. According to a study published by Polish Journal of Environmental Studies, in 2006, mesitylene vapors exert neurotoxic and irritating effects on animals. The same study concluded that the irritating effect of mesitylene on the respiratory tract of mice is four and eight times higher than that of xylene and toluene, respectively. It also showed that mesitylene was found in the liver, lungs, kidneys, and blood of rats after repeated inhalation exposure to mesitylene.
According to the global mesitylene market analysis, North America held a dominant position in the market in 2017 and this can be attributed to high presence of chemical manufacturers in the region such as The DOW Chemical Company, ExxonMobil, and PPG Industries.
Among grades, the industrial grade segment is projected to gain major traction over the forecast period, due to rising demand for mesitylene in the chemical and research industry as regent and solvent.
The electronics segment is forecast to be the fastest-growing segment in the global mesitylene market as mesitylene is widely used as a developer for photopatternable silicones because of its solvent properties. According to German Electrical and Electronic Manufacturers' Association, in 2015, the global electrical and electronics market was valued to US$ 4.666 billion with a share of Asia alone accounting for 59%. Such factors represents immense growth opportunities for electronic segment.
