Xylene (CAS No. 1330-20-7) is a colorless, flammable liquid widely used in various industries. It is a key component in producing many products, including paints, coatings, adhesives, and gasoline. Xylene is known for its strong solvent properties, making it an effective ingredient in many industrial processes.

Among the different isomers of xylene, namely m-xylene, p-xylene, o-xylene, and the xylene mixture of isomers, each has its unique properties and applications.

M-xylene, or meta-xylene, is commonly used as a solvent and is an important intermediate in the production of phthalic anhydride, which is widely used in the manufacturing of plasticizers, dyes, and resins.

P-xylene, also known as para-xylene, is primarily used in the production of terephthalic acid, a key component in the manufacture of polyester fibers, films, and polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles.


O-xylene, or ortho-xylene, is primarily used in the production of phthalic anhydride, just like m-xylene. It is also used as a raw material for the synthesis of phthalate esters, which are commonly utilized as plasticizers.

Xylene mixture of isomers refers to a combination of m-xylene, p-xylene, and o-xylene. This mixture offers a balanced combination of properties, making it suitable for a wide range of applications such as paint thinners, gasoline additives, and printing inks.
