Isopropylbenzene, commonly referred to as cumene, is a flammable colorless hydrocarbon liquid with an aromatic odor and used in a variety of petroleum products. Cumene is insoluble in water, but is soluble in many organic solvents like benzene and ethanol. It is mainly produced by alkylation of benzene.

Cumene is primarily oxidized to cumene hydroperoxide, which is an intermediate product in the synthesis of other industrially important chemicals, primarily phenol (carbolic acid) and acetone (propanone). Acetone is used as a solvent for various plastics and resins and can also be converted into bisphenol A. It is used to make methyl methacrylate.

The most important industrial application of phenol is in the production of bisphenol A, which is used to produce polycarbonate resins. Phenol is also used in production of some very important polymers, including polyamides 6 and 6,6 (nylons), phenolic resins and epoxy resins (super glue). Smaller amounts of phenol is used in the production of phenyl amine (aniline) used in the manufacture of dyes.
