Toluene formerly known as toluol, is a clear, water-insoluble liquid with the typical smell of paint thinners.It is an aromatic hydrocarbon that is widely used as an industrial feedstock and as a solvent. Like other solvents, toluene is sometimes also used as an inhalant drug for its intoxicating properties,however, this can potentially cause severe neurological harm.
