Chlorotoluene Market Segment Analysis:

By Type, The market is divided into three types: o-chlorotoluene, p-chlorotoluene, and chlorotoluene combination. o-Chlorotoluene is widely used in the chemical and pharmaceutical market, as well as in the production of synthetic rubber and colors, and as a pesticide and bactericide. As a result, it is expected to grow at a healthy rate. 2 Chlorotoluene, commonly known as chlorinated toluene, is a set of three chemical compounds in which the benzene ring is joined to a chlorine atom and a methyl group.

 

Chlorotoluene is a colorless liquid that is insoluble in water but soluble in aromatic hydrocarbons. Meta-chlorotoluene, para-chlorotoluene, and ortho-chlorotoluene are three isomeric chemical compounds found in chlorotoluene. A disubstituted benzene ring is joined to one methyl group and one chlorine atom in chlorotoluene.
