    What is Terephthalic Acid?

    Terephthalic acid is an organic compound with the chemical formula C?H?(CO?H)?. It is a white crystalline solid and belongs to the class of aromatic carboxylic acids. Terephthalic acid is an important raw material in the production of various polymers, particularly polyethylene terephthalate (PET).

    PET is a widely used polymer for making plastic bottles, fibers, films, and other products. Terephthalic acid is one of the main building blocks for PET production. It is commonly produced from the oxidation of para-xylene, a derivative of crude oil.
