Phthalic Anhydride (PA) is a derivative of phthalic acid, which is either obtained from the oxidation of ortho-xylene or naphthalene. PA is manufactured in two forms, namely, flakes and molten state. When it comes in contact with water, PA hydrolyzes to form ortho-phthalic acid. PA finds its main applications for plasticization of Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) due to its ability to provide flexibility and strength to the compound. In paints & coatings, alkyd resins produced from anhydrides, such as PA and polyols, are used to fix the curing time of the coating applied.
