Toluene (a.k.a. Methylbenzene) is an organic compound, in the aromatic hydrocarbon class. It is a colorless, clear liquid, insoluble in water, but soluble in most organic compounds. It occurs naturally in crude oil but can also be produced during the catalytic reforming of naphtha and manufacturing of coke from coal. Toluene was first isolated in 1837, with industrial production beginning in the start of the twentieth century. The importance of toluene as a raw material grew tremendously during World War I, for its production of the explosive trinitrotoluene compound (TNT). Currently, Toluene is used as a versatile building block, widely employed as precursor in the production of many industrial chemicals.
