  • Formaldehyde is a chemical compound with the formula H2CO. It is the simplest aldehyde—an organic compound containing a terminal carbonyl group: it consists of exactly one carbonyl.
  • Formaldehyde was first synthesized by the Russian chemist Aleksandr Butlerov (1828-1886), but was conclusively identified by August Wilhelm von Hofmann.
  • Formaldehyde is an intermediate in the oxidation (or combustion) of methane as well as other carbon compounds, e.g. forest fires, in automobile exhaust, and in tobacco smoke.
  • Formaldehyde is produced in the atmosphere by the action of sunlight and oxygen on atmospheric methane and other hydrocarbons; thus, it becomes part of smog.
  • Small amounts of formaldehyde are produced as a metabolic byproduct in most organisms, including humans.
  • Formaldehyde is formed by the dehydrogenation of methanol. The heat required for the endothermic reaction is obtained by burning hydrogen contained in the off-gas produced from the dehydrogenation reaction.
  • A mixture of air and methanol is vapourised and passed into catalyst-packed reactor tubes. The reaction which takes place at 350oC is highly exothermic and generates heat to provide steam for turbines and process heating.
  • Formaldehyde is an important chemical used widely by industry to manufacture building materials and numerous household products.
  • In homes, the most significant sources of formaldehyde are likely to be pressed wood products made using adhesives that contain urea-formaldehyde (UF) resins.
  • Formaldehyde-based solutions are used in embalming to disinfect and temporarily preserve human remains. It is the ability of formaldehyde to fix the tissue that produces the tell-tale firmness of flesh in an embalmed body.
  • Formaldehyde derivatives serve a wide variety of end uses such as wood products, plastics, and coatings.
  • Formaldehyde has been used for many years in consumer goods to deter spoilage caused by microbial contamination. It has been used as a preservative in household cleaning agents, dishwashing liquids, fabric softeners, shoe-care agents, car shampoos and waxes, and carpet-cleaning agents.
  • Formaldehyde can be produced from natural gas at half the cost of methanol based formaldehyde. A natural gas based plant would provide an excellent return on a $5 million investment at a price of about $200/mt compared with conventional formaldehyde selling at $ 280/mt 100% basis.
  • The demand for formaldehyde will continue to track the demand in the housing industry and the various board products used in residential construction and furniture.
  • The use of formaldehyde in the manufacture of chelating agents represents a modest but important market for formaldehyde.
  • Approximately 75% of the formaldehyde used in the synthesis of chelating agents is consumed in the manufacture of ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA). The remaining 25% is used to produce nitrilotriacetic acid (NTA), primarily for export.
  • The formaldehyde adsorption capacity of the L-lysine-immobilized sepiolite was found to be approximately 10 times greater than that of the intact sepiolite, and approximately 100 times greater than that of activated carbon.
