Intermediates are molecules produced during the conversion of a chemical substance to a final product. Chemical intermediates are formed during each step of the reaction to convert a reactant to a product. These have shorter life and are highly reactant. These chemicals are used in various applications. For instance, they are employed in the production of elastic textile fibers, coatings, plastics, pharmaceutical & crop protectants, and detergents. Apart from these, chemical intermediates are also employed in feed preservation. They are also used as de-icing agents for airport runways.
