C7H

Toluene, also known as toluol, is an aromatic hydrocarbon. It is a colorless, water-insoluble liquid with the smell associated with paint thinners. Toluene is predominantly used as an industrial feedstock and a solvent. It is a volatile organic compound, which means that it readily transitions into a gas. This transition occurs at room temperature. Toluene has a sweet odor and is very flammable. It occurs naturally in crude oil or in the tolu tree. It is also a byproduct in the development of styrene. 
As the solvent in some types of paint thinner, permanent markers, contact cement, and certain types of glue, toluene is sometimes used as a recreational inhalant.
Surprisingly, toluene plays a big role in our ability to enjoy the popular beverage Coca-Cola. Toluene is involved in removing the cocaine from the coca leaves, which are used to develop the famous Coca-Cola syrup.
