Aniline, also known as aminobenzene or phenylamine, has 6 carbon (C) atoms, 7 hydrogen (H) atoms, and 1 nitrogen (N) atom in its chemical formula of C6H7N or C6H5NH2. Because aniline has an amino group in its structure, it is also an amine, hence it is classified as an aromatic amine.


The physical properties of Anilines are given below-


Aniline has a boiling of about 184 oC and melting of about -6 o

The compound is slightly soluble in water and sometimes freely soluble in the chemicals such as alcohol and ether.

This organic compound tends to darken when exposed to air and light.

It is said to be weak base and on its reaction with strong acids, it forms anilinium ion -C6H5-NH3+.

The compound is said to be toxic when it gets inhaled through the air or gets absorbed into the skin as it produces nitrogen oxides which are harmful to the environment.

Tag Identification

ANILINES used as a pesticide and fungicides in the agricultural industry?

Aniline causes methemoglobinemia, which reduces oxygen transport to tissues. Aniline can also induce red blood cell destruction, resulting in immediate or delayed hemolytic anaemia.


Aniline is in the form of a yellowish and somewhat brownish oily liquid having a musty and a fishy odour. It smells like the odour of a rotten fish. It is a kind of chemical substance which is a flammable liquid and has an unpleasant odour. The compound is soluble in water. It can also be colourless to light brown. It has a chemical formula of C6H5NH2 or C6H7N and since it has 6 carbon atoms, 1 nitrogen atom and 7 hydrogen atoms in its chemical formula, it is classified under organic compounds.

Blue colour of the jeans is due to aniline dyeing agent. Aniline is an organic base a toxic aromatic amine, is a widely used industrial chemical, particularly in the manufacture of dyes, Plastics, rubber, resins, varnishes, perfumes, pigments, polyurethane foam, photographic developers and pesticides.


Aniline is a musty, fishy-smelling yellowish to brownish, greasy liquid. -6°C melting point; 184°C boiling temperature; 158°F flash point Water-insoluble and somewhat denser than water. Vapors are more dense than air. Because aniline is an aromatic molecule that combines readily with other aromatic compounds, a low aniline point suggests a low diesel index. A high aniline point suggests a highly paraffinic gasoline with a high Diesel index and excellent ignition quality.


Anilines – Uses

Anilines are employed in various fields of science and everyday life as given below-


Anilines are used in the rubber industry for the processing of rubber chemicals and products such as car tyres, balloons, gloves, etc.

It is used as a dyeing agent in the manufacture of clothes such as jeans, etc

It is employed in the production of drugs such as paracetamol, Tylenol, acetaminophen.

ANILINES used as a pesticide and fungicides in the agricultural industry

It is utilized in the manufacture of polyurethane which is, in turn, used in the making of plastics.
