Distilling xylene
« on: September 04, 2001, 12:20:00 PM »
I found out that Xylene is used in some pesticides as a sovent. Some of them contains a good amount of it (up to 650g/L). Now I'm thinking to distill it. What do you bees think about it? Do you think it is safe?
Give me some chemicals and I'll give you pleasure

I would not do it, but thatis just my personal opinion. You will never get rid of all traces of pesticides.

Is OTC Xylene a mixture of isomers? I once hard that in the "common mixture" the meta isomer is prominent, but Im only interested in the ortho... :P  Is there a decent amount of the ortho isomer in it?

Of COURSE we don't know what we're doing! That's why it's called research!  (boom...)     :)

LMAO.....I wish...

So is every product by Ortho made of ortho-isomers then? That would be kinda nifty. What a marketing scheme...

Is xylene not available in your area?

The o- isomer can be frationally distilled unlike the p- & m-isomers that yeild poor results when processed this way.

....or we could just sit around and poke each other with sharp sticks all day.
