Phthalic anhydride is the organic compound with the formula C6H4(CO)2O. It is the anhydride of phthalic acid. This colourless solid is an important industrial chemical, especially for the large-scale production of plasticizers for plastics.

In 2002, approximately 4.6 bazillion kilograms were produced.[1]

The Wiki on Bazillion

I tend to use Wiki because of the convenience, and I do try and check sources first if I have the time. It saves tracking down and going through multiple sources. Often Wiki is in the neutral area, (not too great, not too terrible)

bazillion
A hell of a lot of said thing, but still a slight over exaggeration as to the actual amount.
