  • Uses (1)? It is mainly used in the production of phthalic anhydride (2)? O-xylene is the raw material for the production of germicide fenramine, tetrachlorophenyl peptide and the herbicide bensulfuron-methyl. It is used as intermediate for the manufacture of o-methyl benzoic acid. (3)? It is mainly used as chemical raw materials and solvents. It can be used to produce phthalic anhydride, dyes, pesticides and drugs, such as vitamins. It can also be used as aviation gasoline additives. (4)? Used as chromatographic standards and solvents (5)? As raw materials of synthesis of anhydride and other organic synthesis; Preparation of phthalic acid, phthalic anhydride, terephthalic acid, isophthalic acid; solvent for alkyd resins, lacquers, enamels, rubber cements; manufacture of dyes, pharmaceuticals, and insecticides; motor fuels. o-Xylene is largely used in the production of phthalic anhydride, and is generally extracted by distillation from a mixed Xylene stream in a plant primarily designed for p-Xylene production. Xylene, xylenes, and total xylenes are used interchangeably since xylene usually exists as a mixture of three isomers: 1,2-dimethylbenzene, 1,3-dimethylbenzene, and 1,4-dimethylbenzene, i.e., o-, m-, and p-xylene, and is usually used as a mixture of the three forms. The mixture often also contains ethylbenzene. It is a high volume industrial chemical used in the synthetic fiber, chemical and plastics industries and as a solvent, cleaning agent and thinner for paints and varnishes.
  • Production method Industry applied super-distillation method to separate out the o-xylene from the mixed xylene. O-xylene has a over 5 ℃ difference in the boiling point compared with other components in the mixed xylene. For the distillation, the required tray number is about 150; the reflux ratio being 5-8 and consume relative much energy. O-xylene was originally produced mainly from coal tar. Currently most of the domestic and foreign production of o-xylene is mainly via extraction from oil catalytic reforming and thermal cracking of aromatic hydrocarbon. Owing to that the structures of o-xylene, p-xylene, and m-xylene in the xylene are very similar; their physical parameters are also quite similar. Industrial o-xylene separation mainly adopts super-distillation method; first separate out the o-xylene and ethylbenzene from the mixed xylene which demands the using of 100~150 tray distillation tower; followed by separation of o-xylene and ethylbenzene to obtain pure o-xylene.
  • Physical properties Clear, colorless liquid with an aromatic odor. An odor threshold concentration of 380 ppbv was reported by Nagata and Takeuchi (1990).
