Para Xylene

P-Xylene is an aromatic hydrocarbon. It is one of the three isomers of dimethyl benzene known collectively as xylenes. The p- stands for para-, implying that the two methyl groups in p-Xylene occupy the diametrically opposite substituent positions 1 and 4, as illustrated here in the schematic representation. It is in the positions of the two methyl groups, their arene substitution pattern ,that it differs from the other isomers, o-Xylene and m-Xylene. Each of the three isomers has two methyl substituents attached to the benzene ring; ignoring the substitution patterns they therefore all have the same chemical formula C6H4(CH3)2.
Like all xylene isomers, p-Xylene is dangerously flammable.
