Toluene (C7H8)

Toluene (C7H8)

Heavily produced during the Second World War to produce TNT, methylbenzene (C7H8) – or toluene –  is a volatile organic compound. This substance is now used in many fields of activities such as construction sites (paint solvent, glue or polish), printing plants (ink) or the pharmaceutical industry. It can also be found in some petroleum products to enhance the octane rating in fuels.


Toluene effects on health

Featuring a specific smell (dissolvent), toluene (C7H8) is a colourless, flammable and explosive gas. It reacts with many volatile organic compounds and oxidizers to produce even more explosive gaseous mixtures. This gas is also very harmful and even lethal if swallowed or absorbed by the breathing tracts. Chronic exposure can lead to severe effects to vital organs and can impair fetus heatlh in pregnant women.
