Almost 90 percent of adipic acid produced is used in the production of nylon 66. The nylon, which has a protein-like structure, is further processed into fibers for applications in carpeting, automobile tire cord, and clothing. Adipic acid is also used to manufacture plasticizers and lubricant components.
Food grade adipic acid is used as a gelling aid, an acidulant, and as a leavening and buffering agent.

- In the manufacturing, gamma-Butyrolactone can be used to produce 2-pyrrolidone, N-methyl-2-pyrrolidone and polyvinyl-pyrrolidone. It is also an ideal antioxidant, plasticizer, extractant, absorbent, dispersant, color fixing agent and coagulant.
- In the pharmaceutical industry, it can be used as an anaesthetic and pacifier, as well as to synthesize Ciprofloxacin and interferons, vitamins and cyclopropylamine.
- In agricultural industry, it also has a wide range of applications and can be used in the production of plant growth agent and pesticides.
- In addition, it can be used in the manufacturing of batteries and capacitors, etc.
An aromatic dicarboxylic acid synthesized from meta-xylene, is used to produce aramids, polyesters, highly performance electroinsulating enamel and alkyd resin wihout oil. The largest use of purified isophthalic acid (PIA) is an intermediate in the production of unsaturated polyester resins, followed by polyester and alkyd resins (mainly for surface coatings) and inks, reinforced plastics and packaging applications.

- It is used in anionic specialty formulations
- In other industries such as textile industries, it is used as an mercerising or washing agent
- It is used to increase the surface area of distempers
- As main active matter in all forms of Detergents like Cake, Powder and Liquid formulations
- As emulsifier and wetting agent in small quantity with other surfactants in Toilet soaps for foaming

Methanol is used as a feedstock to produce chemicals such as acetic acid and formaldehyde, which in turn are used in products like adhesives, foams, plywood subfloors, solvents and windshield washer fluid.
Methanol can be used on its own as a vehicle fuel or blended directly into gasoline to produce a high-octane, efficient fuel with lower emissions than conventional gasoline. Methanol gasoline blends have widespread use in China and have been introduced in several countries outside of China. Methanol is also emerging as a clean-burning marine fuel that can cost-effectively meet the shipping industry’s increasingly stringent emissions regulations.
The most important use of paraformaldehyde is as a source of formaldehyde groups in the production of many thermosetting resins, together with phenol, urea, melamine, resorcinol and other similar reagents. These resins are used as molding powders; in the wood industry as glues for chipboard, plywood and furniture; as bonding resins for brakes, abrasives and foundry dyes; as finishing resins for paper and textiles; as driers and glossing agents for paints; as insulating varnishes for electrical parts.
Some typical formulations for the production of such resins starting from paraformaldehyde include dichloroethyl formal, methyl phenol, disinfectants, and insecticides, pharmaceuticals such as vitamin A, embalming preparations, dyestuff and special plasticizers.
In addition, paraformaldehyde is used as a fungicide and bactericide in industries as varied as crude oil production, beet sugar refining, and warehousing.
Paraformaldehyde has widespread acceptance as an additive to stop fermentation of the starch on oil-well-drilling muds.
The sugar beet industry used it to minimize the growth of algae in its continuous diffusers. Hotels and motels in humid areas often use it, with or without added mothproofing agents, in small bags hung in closets to prevent the formation of mildew.
In other closed area where humidity is high as in some warehouses, a light sprinkling of paraformaldehyde effectively controls mold and mildew.
In photography, paraformaldehyde is a gelatin hardener and accelerates development. It is the source of formaldehyde in certain fur treatments. It is a component of certain antiperspirant powders. Shrinkage in wood has been reduced by treatments with the vapors form heated paraformaldehyde.

Tetrahydrofuran (THF) is a cyclic ether with two primary industrial uses. The major use is as a monomer in the production of polytetramethylene ether glycol (PTMEG), a component of cast and thermoplastic urethane elastomers, polyurethane stretch fibers (spandex), and high-performance copolyester-polyether elastomers (COPE). A smaller amount of THF is used as a solvent in polyvinyl chloride (PVC) cements, pharmaceuticals and coatings, precision magnetic tape manufacture, and as a reaction solvent.
