Abstract
2, 6-DI-T-BUTYL-P-ETHYLPHENOL (DBPEP) FINDS COMMERCIAL APPLICATION AS AN ANITOXIDANT IN POLYETHYLENE PACKAGING FILMS. IT IS MADE BY REACTING P-ETHYLPHENOL (PEP) WITH ISOBUTYLENE UNDER ACIDIC CONDITIONS. PEP, AVAILABLE ONLY FROM OVERSEAS SOURCES, IS MADE BY DATED TECHNOLOGY WHICH IS ENERGY INTENSIVE AND WHICH GENERATES LARGE QUANTITIES OF PHENOL CONTAMINATED WASTES. THE OBJECT OF THIS SEARCH IS TO DEFINE AN ALTERNATE SYNTHESIS OF DBPEP USING 2, 6-DI-T-BUTYLPHENOL (DBP) AS THE STARTING MATERIAL. DBP IS READILY AVAILABLE FROM DOMESTIC SOURCES AT RELATIVELY LOW COST.
