o-Toluene sulfonamide was mainly produced as a chemical intermediate for the production of saccharin. A mixture of o-Toluene sulfonamide with the p-isomer is used as a plasticizer for hot -melt adhesives, a chemical intermediate for fluorescent pigments and a chemical intermediate for plasticizer resins. (S080800). Studies suggest that o-Toluene sulfonamide has potential mutagenic activity.
