From DCMX to the present chemical product engineerin

DCMX, 2,4-Dichloro-3,5-Dimethylphenol, also known as 2,4-Dichloro-3,5-Xylenol, 2,4-dichloro-3,5-dimethylphenol.3,5-dimethyl-2,4-dichlorophenol, is really a form of grey-white or light yellow powder having a smell of phenol. Its molecular formula is 133-53-9.

two,4-dichloro-3,5-xylenol is a kind of anticorrosive and antibacterial agent featured with safety and efficiency. It includes a answer point of 20ºC for 0.2g/L. It can be solved in the alkaline aqueous remedy and can easily be solved in the organic solutions such as alcohol, ether, ketone and so on.

It can be used as an anticorrosive and antibacterial agent widely in the fields such as private caring products eg. sanitizer, soap and shower gel and industrial fields eg. roll films, glue, oil and chemistry and paper-making.

DCMX has five categories of isomer, which are different in usage, toxicity and the extent for the environment pollution. Spectrophotometer and the measure of fluorescence are both available to test the type of phenol, but these methods can only test the total amount of the phenol. Papers that report how to recognize the different isomers at one time are still not published.

Crafts of the technology can measure whether an enterprise is advanced, whether it is competitive and whether it can have a leadership in the fierce competition. With the dramatic development of Dcmx, the relevant research and development on its core produce technology will surely become a concern among the enterprises in this industry. Emphasis must be put on the following researches, crafts facilities and the trend of application of the core technology on DCXM so that enterprises can elevate the technology norms of the products and raise the market competitiveness. Thus, it may also has an important significance to the chemical engineering.

The chemical engineering is now confronted with new challenges as well as new projects. During the process of addressing these problems, the chemical engineering must be developed rapidly. Its research field and future application will transcend its original meanings.


Chemical engineering is now pushing forward two aspects. One is that with the mature of the subject, development will be deepened in the subject. On the other hand, we should make new researches in new fields and solve the new problems in the new fields.

In order to have a complete command of the process regulation, we should do deeper researches on the relevant subjects that are often involved in the chemical engineering. These researches are not only benefit to address the problems in the traditional research fields, but also can help to kwon about the new issues. Permeating to the new fields is an objective need and a driving force for the subject development as well. Throughout the history, the chemical engineering got development during the optimization and development of new process. And beyond the chemistry industry, the use of chemistry can be found in almost every occasion in which reaction and energy passage occur. This recognition reflects the existing outlook of chemical engineering.
