Solvents play a primary role in industrial production. They can dissolve, dilute, and, in an excellent distribution, engross other substances without altering them chemically. Solvents (sometimes also called dissolvent) are frequently used in the varnishes and paints, printing inks, and adhesives industry and, for example, as an element of pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and detergents. Mixtures that cause unpleasant odors, explosive vapors, and health and environmental harms are controversial and increasingly directed by the legislature.
