Aniline
C6H7N
Pure/commercial grade (min. 99.9% purity); technical grade (min. 99.5% purity); reagent grade (min. 99% purity)
The most important application of Aniline is in the production of MDI, a key intermediate for polyurethanes widely used in foams, elastomers, coatings and resins. Such polyurethane-based products, in turn, are used in a number of industries (e.g. construction, housing, automative). The growth in demand for aniline over the past years is, indeed, highly associated with the urethanes sector. Aniline is also raw material for rubber chemicals, such as vulcanization accelerators, antioxidants and inhibitors. Other minor applications of Aniline include: Dyes and pigments; Agro chemicals (herbicides, fungicides, defoliants); Specialty fibers; Pharmaceuticals; Petroleum refining; Explosives.
Aniline is used as raw material in the production of the following derivates: Acetoacetanilide; benzoxazine resin; cyclohexylamine; diphenylamine; ethylaniline; fluorobenzene; indole; MDI (methylene diphenyl diisocyanate); n-methylaniline; sulfanilic acid; 2,6-xylidine

Aniline (a.k.a. Phenylamine, Aminobenzene, Benzenamine) is a toxic organic compound, the simplest of the primary aromatic amines. It is a colorless to pale yellow liquid (rapidly becomes brown on exposure to air and light), with rotten odor, soluble in water. It was first produced in 1826 and, currently, is one of the most produced nitrogen compounds worldwide.

It was first produced in 1826 and, currently, is one of the most produced nitrogen compounds worldwide.

Chemical Formula. C6H7N

Commercial Grades. Pure/commercial grade (min. 99.9% purity); technical grade (min. 99.5% purity); reagent grade (min. 99% purity)

Uses. The most important application of Aniline is in the production of MDI, a key intermediate for polyurethanes widely used in foams, elastomers, coatings and resins. Such polyurethane-based products, in turn, are used in a number of industries (e.g. construction, housing, automative). The growth in demand for aniline over the past years is, indeed, highly associated with the urethanes sector.
