Any of a group of three metameric hydrocarbons of the aromatic series, found in coal and wood tar, and so named because found in crude wood spirit. They are colorless, oily, inflammable liquids, C6H4.(CH3)2, being dimethyl benzenes, and are called respectively orthoxylene, metaxylene, and paraxylene. Called also xylol.
xylon = wood; hydrocarbons from wood; a clearing agent.
Aromatic hydrocarbon solvent. Toxic.
C6H4(CH3), a toxic isomeric liquid.
a hydrocarbon liquid derived from the distillation of fossil fuels.
Any of three isomeric hydrocarbons that are flammable volatile colorless liquids obtained from crude oil or natural gas. They are aromatic hydrocarbons commonly used as industrial solvents and in producing aviation fuel, resins, and dyes.
A solvent closely related to toluene, but more toxic. Used in paints, glues, marker pens, degreasers, pesticides, and many other products. Highly flammable.*Severe eye and moderate skin irritant. Significant neurotoxic effects. Reproductive effects. Used in some spot removers, car cleaners, paints, and other consumer products. no listings
a colorless flammable volatile liquid hydrocarbon used as a solvent
Any of three flammable hydrocarbons, C6H4(CH3)2 similar to benzene. A commerical mixture is used as a solvent when oilfield emulsions are being tested.
An aromatic hydrocarbon derived from petroleum and used to increase octane. Highly valued as a petrochemical feedstock. Xylene is highly photochemically reactive and, as a constituent of tailpipe emissions, is a contributor to smog formation .
Xylene is a fast-drying solvent recommended for use with the SRC Tuff-Coat inflatable boat repair system. It's added to the Basecoat (10% proportion) as a thinner, if desired, for smoother application.
A solvent obtained from wood tar, coal tar, or petroleum.
The term xylenes refers to a group of 3 benzene derivatives which encompasses ortho-, meta-, and para- isomers of dimethyl benzene. The o-, m- and p- isomers specify to which carbon atoms (of the main benzene ring) the two methyl groups are attached. Counting the carbon atoms from one of the ring carbons bonded to a methyl group, and counting towards the second ring carbon bonded to a methyl group, the o- isomer has the IUPAC name of 1,2-dimethylbenzene.
