RE: The tariff classification of 4,4'-Oxydianiline, CAS # 101-80-4 and Pyromellitic dianhydride CAS # 89-32-7, imported in bulk form, from China

Dear Mr. Huang:

In your letter dated March 10, 2002, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

4,4’-Oxydianiline, also known as Benzenamine, 4,4'-oxybis-, is an amino-phenol ether. Product is indicated for use as a chemical intermediate in the manufacture of polyimide and polyester-imide resins and cross-linking agent for polymers. Pyromellitic dianhydride, also known as 1H,3H-Benzo[1,2-c:4,5-c']difuran-1,3,5,7-tetrone, is an aromatic polycarboxylic acid. Technical literature indicates that the product is not used as a plasticizer but rather a crosslinking agent in the manufacture of plasticizers.

The applicable subheading for Pyromellitic dianhydride will be 2917.39.7000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Aromatic polycarboxylic acids, their anhydrides, halides, peroxides, peroxyacids and their derivatives: Other: Other: Other: Other..
