Description

Toluene, a volatile organic compound (VOC), is a clear and colorless liquid with a distinctive smell. Widely used in various industries such as paints, solvents, and adhesives, its versatile properties contribute to the production of numerous consumer and industrial products. However, improper handling and exposure can lead to health risks, including respiratory and neurological effects. Ensuring proper ventilation, protective equipment, and safe storage practices are crucial to harness its benefits while minimizing potential health hazards.
"We think AC’s technology can revolutionise the way farmers detect mildew and save millions of lost crops."
