Cumene (a.k.a. Isopropylbenzene) is an organic compound, of the aromatic hydrocarbon class. It is a colorless liquid, insoluble in water, but soluble in most organic solvents. The production of Cumene grew rapidly during World War II, when this aromatic compound was used as a component of aviation fuel. Nowadays, Cumene is mainly used in the production of phenol and its acetone coproduct, two major petrochemicals with a number of applications in the chemical and polymer industries.
