Product Detail

Xylene is an organic compound with the formula C8H10 that is a colorless transparent liquid at room temperature. It is produced when two hydrogen atoms in the benzene ring are replaced by methyl groups. Xylene has a lower boiling point and ignition point, and is highly volatile. Due to its good solubility and volatility, it is widely used in industry and daily life.

Application

1. Solvent: xylene is a commonly used organic solvent, used to dissolve and dilute various resins, paints, adhesives, etc. It has a high solubility and volatility and can be used to dissolve coatings, clean industrial equipment and remove surface stains.

2. Chemical synthesis: DMB plays an important role in organic synthesis as a catalyst or solvent. It is a common intermediate in many organic synthesis reactions and can be used to synthesize drugs, dyes, fragrances, plastics, synthetic fibers and other chemicals.

3. Fuel additives: Because chemical xylene has a high octane number, it can improve the anti-knock performance of gasoline and is widely used as a fuel additive. Adding proper amount of xylene can improve the combustion efficiency and power performance of gasoline.

4. Medicine and medical treatment: xylene has certain applications in the field of medicine. It can be used as a raw material for drug synthesis and as a solvent in drug separation and purification processes. Xylene is also used to clean and disinfect medical equipment and instruments.

5. Other applications: xylene also has some special applications. For example, it can be used as a solvent for paints, glues and plastics to increase their adhesion and durability. In addition, xylene can also be used as a stabilizer for petroleum and coal bitumen to reduce thermal cracking and oxidation reactions.
