Specifications

Description

Applications
Toluene is used as solvent for paints, paint thinners, silicone sealants, many chemical reactants, rubber, printing ink, adhesives (glues), lacquers, leather tanners and disinfectants. It is an important raw material to synthesize pharmaceuticals, paints, resins, dyes, toluene diisocyanate and explosives like trinitrotoluene. It is used as a standard material for chromatography and an analytical reagent. It plays an important role in the manufacture of benzene, xylene, phenol, poly urethane polymers, cosmetics and jet fuel blends. It is used as a fuel additive to increase octane ratings and as a coolant for its good heat transfer capabilities in sodium cold traps used in nuclear reactor system loops.

Solubility
Miscible with ethanol, benzene, diethyl ether, acetone, chloroform, glacial acetic acid and carbon disulfide. Immiscible with water.

Notes
Incompatible with strong oxidizing agents.
