Terephthalic acid is produced by oxidizing para-xylene, and it is also known as para phthalic acid, benzene para dicarboxylic acid, or 1,4 benzene dicarboxylic acid in the commercial world. By combining with glycols, it is used in the production of synthetic resins, fibres, and films.

The material must be in the form of a white, crystalline, free-flowing powder that is free of foreign impurities such as dust and dirt. Terephthalic is not soluble in water, chloroform, ether, or acetic acid, but it is slightly soluble in alcohol and completely soluble in alkalis, and Terephthalic acid is extremely non-toxic. When tested according to the method specified, the material must also meet the requirements specified in the standard.
