m-Xylene or meta-xylene is an aromatic hydrocarbon. The compound is one of the three isomers of dimethyl benzene, and these three isomers are collectively known as xylenes. Petroleum holds about one weight percent xylenes. It belongs to the group of toluenes and contains a methane group in its benzene ring. It contains methyl groups in positions 1 and 3.
One of the major uses of meta-xylene involves the production of isophthalic acid, that is often used as a copolymerising monomer in altering the characteristics of polyethylene terephthalate. The transformation of m-xylene into isophthalic acid entails catalytic oxidation. meta-Xylene is also utilised as a raw material in the production of 2,4- and 2,6-xylidine as well as a range of smaller-volume chemicals. It is used in the production of alkyl resins and polyester.
