    Abstract
    Styrene is a non-polar organic compound used in very high-volume for the industrial scale production of commercially important polymers such as polystyrene resins as well as copolymers like acrylonitrile butadiene styrene , latex, and rubber. These resins are widely used in manufacturing of various products including single use plastics such as disposable cups and containers, protective packaging, heat insulation etc. The large-scale utilization leads to the over-accumulation of styrene waste in the environment causing deleterious health risks including cancer, neurological...
