In China, spot liquid good offers were up US$100-140 a ton in the first week of June while solid goods rose US$100 a ton. Caprolactum prices surged on back of firming benzene cost and tight supply. In China, offers in spot market gained while discussions were talked up. In contract, both Sinopec and Fibrant hiked their nominations for June while high?end contracts were not settled during the week.
