Eastman Specialty Acids and Anhydrides

Eastman specialty acids and anhydrides are high-purity intermediates used in the synthesis and manufacture of specialty molecules. They are colorless and each with a characteristic odor that declines in intensity with an increase in molecular weight. Most chemical reactions involving these specialty acids and anhydrides involve a carboxyl group. Due to their varied reaction potential, they can be used in the production of a wide variety of products such as food additives, fragrances, plastics, plasticizers, surfactants, textiles, coatings, and chemical intermediates.
