Description

Applications
Xylene is used as a solvent in pharmaceutical, printing, rubber and leather industries. It is an important component of ink, rubber and adhesives as well as thinning paints and varnishes.

It finds application as a short-term hydrophobic clearing agent of tissue samples by histologists. It is a precursor for the preparation of xylene dichlorides, xylyl bromide, terephthalic acid and dimethyl terephthalate. It acts as a cleaning agent for steel, silicon wafers and integrated circuits.
