Toluene or methylbenzene (C7H8) is a colorless, water-insoluble, aromatic hydrocarbon compound that exhibits beta-oxidants, hepaprotective, neurotransmitters and anesthetic properties. It can be produced from the fractional distillation of the crude oil and coke-oven operations in the form of by-products. Toluene aids in drying, dissolving, and thinning substances, on account of which it is extensively used as an intermediate in paints, thinners, nail polish, and lacquers.
