More about Toluene : Our gamut of toluene that we offer is also known as methylbenzene or phenylmethane. It is a clear and water-insoluble liquid has the typical smell of paint thinners, redolent of the sweet smell of the related compound benzene. It is an aromatic hydrocarbon used widely as an industrial feedstock and also as a solvent. Toluene is also used as an inhalant drug like other solvents for its intoxicating properties.
