practical and industrial uses
Practical and Industrial Uses



Earlier Uses:

After shave lotion

Industrial solvent for degreasing metals

Current Uses:

Intermediate to make other chemicals (eg. Ethylbenzene, cyclohexane)

Small amounts used to make rubbers, lubricants, dyes, detergents, drugs, and explosives.

  • Used as fuels
    • 1-4C: heating and cooking purposes
    • 5-8C: serve as fuels for internal combustion engines
    • 9-16C: diesel and aviation fuel
    • 16+C: lubricating oil and fuel oil
