Styrene Monomer (SM) is naturally occurring organic compound that can also be made on a commercial scale in a production plant environment. Interestingly, Styrene Monomer is found naturally occurring in strawberries, coffee beans, peanuts, and cinnamon. Commercially, SM is used directly in a variety applications including paints, coatings, electronics, and automobiles. Styrene is most commonly used as a feedstock for polystyrene plastic.
