p-Xylene (a.k.a. Paraxylene, p-Xylol, 1,4-Dimethylbenzene) is the most important commercial isomer among the xylenes group (benzene derivates). It is a colorless watery liquid with sweet odor. The most important application of paraxylene is in the production of terephthalic acid and dimethyl terephthalate, widely used in the manufacture of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) for ultimate use in fibers, films and resins.
