Tertiary Butylhydroquinone Market

Market Insights on Tertiary Butylhydroquinone covering sales outlook, demand forecast & up-to-date key trends

Tertiary Butylhydroquinone Market: Global Industry Analysis 2012 - 2016 and Opportunity Assessment; 2017 - 2027

Tertiary Butylhydroquinone Market: Introduction

The oxidation of food products and vegetable oils is a severe problem for consumers as well as for manufacturers because it can reduce the shelf life of the food products and also result in loss of flavour of the product, which further can increase the toxicity of the products. In order to avoid the toxicity, retain the flavour and shelf life of the food products, tertiary butylhydroquinone is used.

Tertiary butylhydroquinone is an organic aroma compound, it is a derivative of hydroquinone and commonly abbreviated as TBHQ having molecular formula C10H12O2 and available in the crystalline form. TBHQ is a synthetic antioxidant and used as a preservative to prevent the food products from oxidation. Other than food products, TBHQ is used in perfumeries to lower the evaporation rate and improve the stability of the fragrance.

There are several other applications of TBHQ, such as used to inhibit the autopolymerisation of organic peroxide, used in biodiesel as an antioxidant and in many more applications. The effectiveness of TBHQ is significant as it can work at very low concentration of 0.02%.

On the basis of different methods of application of TBHQ to the food products and other related products, several methods are used, such as direct, concentrate, proportionate and spray methods.  As it is used mostly for food and vegetable oils, safety of the products is a major issue, but the European Food and Safety Authority (EFSA) and U.S. Food and Drug Association (FDA) have granted the use of TBHQ all over the world.
