Isophthalic Acid [CAS# 121-91-5] is an organic compound and
a dicarboxylic acid formed from the oxidation of meta-xylene. It is a colorless
solid soluble in alcohol, acetic acid, and oxygenated solids. Isophthalic Acid
is produced on a large industrial scale due to its high use as a component of
copolymer polyethylene terephthalate in which it reduces crystallinity.

Isophthalic Acid is used in surface coating resins and
unsaturated polyester resins to improve chemical and water resistance.
Additionally, it has applications as a petrochemical and plastic additive,
especially for bottle resins. Isophthalic Acid is also used in the production
of insulation materials.
