Pseudocumene is also known as 1,2,4-Trimethylbenzene, a colorless flammable liquid with a strong odor. It is insoluble in water but soluble in organic solvents. Pseudocumene naturally occurs in coal tar and petroleum. It is the major component of the petroleum refinery distillation fraction known as the C9 fraction. Pseudocumene is used as a sterilizing agent and also for the production of resins, dyes, and perfumes. It is also a gasoline additive. It is also used as a solvent as paint in making dyes and in the production of prescription drugs.

 pseudocumene is an organic compound with the chemical formula C6H3(CH3)3. Classified as an aromatic hydrocarbon, it is a flammable colorless liquid with a strong odor. It is nearly insoluble in water but soluble in organic solvents. It occurs naturally in coal tar and petroleum (about 3%). It is one of the three isomers of trimethylbenzene.

Industrially, it is isolated from the C9 aromatic hydrocarbon fraction during petroleum distillation. Approximately 40% of this fraction is 1,2,4-trimethylbenzene. It is also generated by methylation of toluene and xylenes and the disproportionation of xylene over aluminosilicate catalysts.

Pseudocumene is a precursor to mellitic anhydride, from which high-performance polymers are made. It is also used as a sterilizing agent and in the making of dyes, perfumes and resins. Another use is as a gasoline additive.


1,2,4-Trimethylbenzene dissolved in mineral oil is used as a liquid scintillator in particle physics experiments such as NOνA and Borexino.

This product is a basic organic chemical raw material, can be used in the production of medicine (vitamin E), dyestuff and synthetic resin.

It can also produce triphenylitic anhydride, homophenyltetraformic acid dianhydride, water-soluble alkyd resin, unsaturated polyester resin and plasticizer, epoxy resin curing agent and surfactant.

Used in the production of PVC plastic plasticizer trioctyl meththalate, powder coating, thermal insulation paint for motor, etc
