Maleic Anhydride molecular structureParchem has been a leading supplier of fine and specialty chemicals to the personal care, pharmaceutical, nutrition, and specialty chemical markets for over twenty years!  One of our strongest and most demanded products is maleic anhydride [CAS 108-31-6], an organic chemical intermediate often used in the production of downstream chemical derivatives in plastic production and other industrial manufacturing processes.  Maleic anhydride is also often used as a dispersant in drilling muds due to its highly reactive molecular profile.  Maleic anhydride hydrolyzes readily to produce maleic acid, a dicarboxylic acid derivative that is useful in pharmaceutical formulations as a stabilizing ligand.

Maleic anhydride is one of Parchem’s strongest products because of Parchem’s strategic sourcing relationships with the world’s leading chemical manufacturers.  Maleic anhydride was once produced using benzene, but as benzene prices gradually increased over the past decade, many producers have begun to use n-butane as their primary feedstock.  Oxidizing agents such as vanadium pentoxide are typically used as catalysts to drive the reaction to completion and yield high-purity maleic anhydride. Parchem - fine and specialty chemicals supplies maleic anhydride briquettes with ≥99.5% purity and ≤0.2% free maleic acid content
