Summary

Introduction To Petrochemical Industry. The present lifestyle needs the use of products based upon petrochemicals:- solvents, plastics, medicines, processed foods, packaging of different goods, pigments, furniture, entertainment, travel and so on. Currently, the basic organic chemical industry uses eight basic building blocks derived predominantly from petroleum feedstocks. This course discusses the different feedstocks such as crude oil, shale gas, shale oil and coal. The eight-building blocks are classified based on the number of carbon atoms they possess. These are C1, C2, C3, C4, C5, C6, C7 and C8. The compounds containing more than eight carbon atoms i. E. C9, C10 and onwards are used for making fuels or subjected to cracking or other processes to get C1 to C8 fractions. This Refresher Course, ‘Basic Understanding of the Petrochemical Industry’ reviews specifications, characteristics and general refining steps practised in refineries. It also presents the basic behaviour of polymeric materials in the first lecture. In the remaining 8 lectures, properties and manufacturing of important monomers and major polymers and their applications are briefly explained. The total lecture time is 6 hours and 30 minutes.
