Abstract

Pure benzene has no methyl groups (CH(3)) attached to its structure. If one or two CH(3) groups are substituted, then new compounds are formed resulting in higher molecular weights (MW). These new compounds are toluene and xylene. Benzene C(6)H(6) 78 MW Toluene C(6)H(5)(CH(3)) 92 MW Xylene C(6)H(4)(CH(3))(2) 106 MW
