What are the main applications of methyl hydroquinone

    Trimethylhydroquinone (trimethylhydroquinone) is an important intermediate in the industrial synthesis of vitamin E. Trimethylhydroquinone is synthesized by condensation reaction with isophytool side chains to produce vitamin E. As an important antioxidant, vitamin E is mainly used in medicine, food, feed and cosmetic additives. At present, BASF, Dissmann, Zhejiang Xinhe Cheng and Zhejiang Pharmaceutical’s four major companies occupy 95% of the global market share of vitamin E

    Vitamins can be prepared by heating and condensation of trimethylhydroquinone as the main ring and side chain C isophytool in sulfuric acid. In recent years, due to the wide application of vitamin E in the field of medical treatment, food and feed, vitamin E products around the world continue to be popular, especially in Europe and the United States market is in short supply, the price is strong. Demand for trimethylhydroquinone, which is used to produce vitamin E, will also follow.

    1. Pharmaceutical industry
      Vitamin E is the floorboard of the phenolic compound, also known as tocopherol, reproductive vitamins, infertility, etc., appearance is golden yellow or light yellow viscous oily liquid, with a gentle, special smell and taste, relative density 0.947-0.955, in the air and prone to oxidation and light into a dark red, with acetone, ether or plants miscibility, soluble in ethanol, Almost insoluble in water, it is a fat soluble antioxidant. Commodities can be divided into natural and synthetic categories. The most commonly used form of vitamin E is its vinegar, which can be divided into oil and powder.

    In recent years, researches on the medical functions and effects of VE have made rapid progress. As an intracellular antioxidant, VE can inhibit REDOX reactions in various cells and organs, especially protect cell membranes from free radicals caused by the peroxidation of unsaturated vinegar compounds. Studies have shown that lack of VE can directly affect the normal function of reproductive, muscle, circulatory, skeletal and nervous systems. VE can also reduce the damage of various toxins to the human body. In the pharmaceutical industry, vitamin E is used as a drug to reduce the occurrence of heart disease, reduce intestinal chronic inflammation, anti-aging, but also can avoid the human lung hemorrhage, liver necrosis, nephropathy and creatine urea disease, enhance immunity. Pharmaceutical demand for VE has increased rapidly in recent years.

    2, food
    VE added to food can play the role of preservative preservation, as a food antioxidant, VE has many advantages, such as high boiling point, good heat stability, so it is especially suitable for the need to heat and preserve food such as instant noodles, margarine, milk powder, etc. VE is more suitable for the production of a variety of health fortified food, especially for infants, pregnant women food nutrition fortifier.

    In the food industry, vitamin E is mainly used as a good antioxidant in fatty and oily foods, which can maintain the fresh flavor of processed foods and make them stable and long-lasting. Adding 0.04% vitamin E in fish processing can improve fish odor and product flavor. The raw meat of processing sausage is added 0.05% of Vitro-E, which can keep the sausage fresh and anticorrosive. Vitamin E is also used in the production of a variety of functional fortified foods, especially as a nutritional fortifier for infants and young children.

    Recently, the important industrial use of vitamin E is to replace the traditional antioxidants such as BHA and BHT as antioxidant additives in plastic products. Food packaging plastic film, mostly including adding industrial antioxidants on the human body has a different degree of poisoning, and the use of vitamin E as non-toxic substitute of plastics antioxidant, has proven to be safe and effective system of stability, no effect on food color, smell and taste, and can provide antioxidant protection, in a long time to keep the food is not rotten.

    1. Cosmetics
      Environmental pollution and ultraviolet radiation can produce free radicals, which can cause skin, cell and tissue damage and accelerate the aging process. Studies have confirmed that VE plays a decisive role in protecting skin from free radical damage. At the same time VE as antioxidant can prolong the use of cosmetics. VE can promote skin metabolism and prevent pigmentation, improve skin elasticity, beauty, skin care, anti-aging and other properties, has become the mainstream of nutritional series cosmetics in the international market.

    Vitamin E is a substance needed by human skin cells, and has antioxidant and anti-aging effects, but normal vitamin E is difficult to be absorbed by cells through the skin; But when vitamin E is processed by nanotechnology, in a few minutes can be through the dermis, quickly absorbed by skin cells, and has freckle function, this nano vitamin E cosmetics than the general hydrogen brewer products freckle effect is good, fast, and safe, non-toxic side effects. In this way, nano cosmetics in the solution of freckle intractable on the road to take a big step. A new way to solve the problem that the usual freckle ingredients are difficult to absorb into the skin.
