A Solvent is a liquid that dissolves a solute. Solvents are organic chemicals and form an important part of the Indian petrochemical industry. The Industry is dominated by PSUs and private companies. The prices of derivatives like chemicals and solvents are vulnerable to crude price volatility. For example Benzene is produced from naphtha, which is made from crude oil. Phenol and acetone are produced from benzene and propylene. Following the world crude crude price index, Oil marketing companies revise the solvents prices on a fortnightly basis.
