What is it about?

4-aminodiphenylamine (4-ADPA) is a common industrial chemical that is used heavily in the rubber chemicals industry as a precursor to additives that improve the lifetime and flexibility of automobile tires. By using modern advances in chemistry and chemical engineering, it is possible to make 4-ADPA at relatively low cost, without the environmental pollution associated with more traditional processes. Advances in the field are reviewed and compared.

Why is it important?

Because of the high-volume of 4-aminodiphenylamine used by the rubber chemicals industry, any and all improvements to the process efficiency are of interest since they present opportunities to decrease further the cost and environmental burden of producing automobile tire component chemicals.
