Ortho-Phthalic Aldehyde or o-Phthalaldehyde (received clearance by FDA in October 1999) is a chemical compound commonly abbreviated as OPA. This pale yellow solid chemical is considered as the building block for pharmacompounds. Ortho-Phthalic Aldehyde, also known as Fluoraldehyde Crystals, is basically a highly sensitive fluorescent derivatization reagent for various microbiocidal activities.
Its outstanding material compatibility along with barely perceptible odor does not need any exposure monitoring. Owing to this, Ortho-Phthalic Aldehyde is progressively being used as a replacement in the healthcare industry for glutaraldehyde, which is better known for sensitizer. Additionally, it has also exposed more anti mycobactericidal activity therefore, allowing using at lower concentrations. However to protect visitors, employees and patients it must be used according to manufacturer’s directions.
Market opportunities for Ortho-Phthalic Aldehyde are emerging as it has several potential advantages such as it requires no activation, it is not an irritant to eyes and nasal passages. Ortho-Phthalic Aldehyde has excellent stability over a wide range of PH i.e. PH3-9 and is not subjected to any exposure monitoring. Increasing scope of innovation to produce efficient and safe chemicals, rise in sterilization equipment and disinfectants market are the key drivers for ortho-Phthalic Aldehyde market. However, rising cost of raw material, environmental and regulatory issues are some key challenges faced by Ortho-Phthalic Aldehyde market.
