Toluene, also known as toluol and methylbenzene, is a colorless, water-insoluble liquid, with a benzene-like odor. It exhibits beta-oxidant, depressant, hepatoprotective, anesthetic, and neurotransmitter properties. Toluene is an aromatic hydrocarbon that is used in many industrial applications, mostly as a solvent and industrial feedstock. It is also used in the explosives industry to manufacture flammable compounds and in the production of hair dyes. Moreover, due to its low sensitivity characteristics and high-octane ratings, toluene is considered as an ideal fuel for heavily loaded engines.
