We help you source Dicyclopentadiene in China

Our Advantages:

Our company has a team of specialized pharmaceutical intermediates, and at the same time we have a wealth of plant resources, we know the reactions each plant excels at, know the waste and exhaust gases for each reaction, and understand the costs and methods of treatment.

So, we can quickly match the most suitable plant for you From the material in the lab, to commercial production, we can help you get it fast.

We divide the entire pharmaceutical intermediate production process into the following sections: 1. Laboratories develop routes 2. Inter test test 3. Large production shop trial production Every step we have a lot of experience and success stories

We have a 20+ year track record of working with suppliers in China and rating reports on them, and we keep our suppliers updated with the latest news so our customers can get the latest supplier reports. We know the market well and have early warning notifications on upstream raw material prices to help you build a stable supply chain.

When selecting suppliers, our procurement specialists will audit the qualification of suppliers, conduct thorough investigations such as field visits and sample testing, and make ratings to ensure the authenticity and legality of supplier information.

We have a long-term stable cooperation with GLP laboratories, encounter customer test results and supplier test results do not match the situation, we will commission a third party to test to ensure the accuracy, authenticity and reliability of the experimental results. In this way, we can effectively control the product quality problems.

We have a long-term cooperative warehouse and can follow up packaging and labeling according to safety regulations and customer requirements. In order to effectively prevent damage to the goods in transit, we have prepared various reinforcement measures and packaging solutions.

Dicyclopentadiene(DCPD) is a cyclic compound. It has the systematic name 1,2-bis(cyclopentadienyl)ethene.

DCPD can be produced through the HOSCHER-MORSE reaction and the WOLF-KUSHNER reduction. During the production process, two organic compounds react to produce a high viscosity and good solvent properties at a low cost.

The main component of DCPD is dicyclopentadiene. It is a colourless liquid with a mild, pleasant odour. It is slightly soluble in water and miscible with alcohol, ether, and chloroform.

It degrades into cyclopentadiene (CPD) when exposed to air. Dicyclopentadiene(DCPD) is used in organic synthesis as an axial ligand for rhodium, palladium, and iridium catalysts for olefin polymerization. The compound is used as an intermediate to other products, notably neoprene.


Dicyclopentadiene(DCPD) is mainly used as a monomer for the production of synthetic rubber.

It is also used to make other chemicals, such as dicyclopentadiene acrylonitrile (DCPDAN), dicyclopentadiene styrene (DCS) and polybutylene terephthalate (PBT). DCPD is mainly used in the production of synthetic rubbers, polyamides, and plastics.

It has commercial applications in the production of vulcanized rubber, polyester resins, unsaturated polyesters, flame retardants, antiknock agents for gasoline, rubber substitutes for tires and other products.

It is also used as a component in adhesives, binders, and defoamers. It is used as a substrate for the deposition of thin films. It is also used as a gas in fire extinguishers.
