Xylene

Xylene is a clear, colorless, and flammable liquid that belongs to a group of aromatic hydrocarbons. It is derived from crude oil and is composed of three isomeric forms: ortho-xylene, meta-xylene, and para-xylene. The mixture is often referred to as a xylene isomer or xylene blend. Xylene is commonly used as a solvent in various industrial and laboratory applications.

Xylene is a clear, colorless, and flammable liquid that belongs to a group of aromatic hydrocarbons. It is derived from crude oil and is composed of three isomeric forms: ortho-xylene, meta-xylene, and para-xylene. The mixture is often referred to as a xylene isomer or xylene blend. Xylene is commonly used as a solvent in various industrial and laboratory applications. It’s known for its ability to dissolve a wide range of substances and is often used in histology and pathology laboratories for tissue processing and staining. Additionally, xylene is used in the production of various chemicals, as a component in some paints and coatings, and as a cleaning agent. It’s important to handle xylene with care due to its flammable nature and potential health hazards, including respiratory and central nervous system effects. Proper safety precautions should be observed when working with xylene, such as using it in a well-ventilated area and wearing appropriate personal protective equipment.

For many learners high school is not enough to prepare them for what they are to face at first year university. They find themselves completely overwhelmed and intimidated by what is expected of them to be able to do in a laboratory.

Unfortunately many learners who want to pursue science subjects go through this dilemma, few as they are because fact is SA is not producing enough learners who will become engineers, doctors, science researchers, let alone science innovators.

To address this, we developed a chemistry kits with 52 experiments for use by learners at home. This gives them an opportunity to gain hand-on exposure and engagement, confidence and understanding they need to study sciences further.

The kit comes with a manual explaining how science is experienced in daily life and therefore brings awareness of the application and usefulness of science, helping the learner relate to what they learn at school.

Some schools do have kits where only the teacher demonstrates the experiments and this is great, but you don’t master driving by watching the driving instructor, you must get in the driver’s seat yourself.
