About Toluene. Toluene (a.k.a. Methylbenzene) is an aromatic hydrocarbon, widely used as precursor to produce industrial chemicals. It occurs naturally in crude oil but can also be produced during the catalytic reforming of naphtha and manufacturing of coke from coal. It is a colorless liquid, which smell resembles paint thinner.
Chemical Formula. C7H8
Commercial Grades. Commercial grade (min. 96% purity), nitration grade (min. 98% purity), TDI grade (min. 99% purity).
Uses. Aviation gasoline octane booster and solvents (paints, printing inks, adhesives), process solvent (dehydration, esterification, Dilchil lubricating oil dewaxing process); foams; alcohol denaturant; scintillation counters; rubber products fabrication.
- Naphtha, crude oil (catalytic reforming)
- Coal, lignine, etc. (gasification or coking)
Derivatives. Benzene; phenol; caprolactam; trinitrotoluene (TNT); acetone; benzaldehyde; paraxylene; xylene, mixed; styrene; benzoic acid.
