Application areas:

Nitrobenzene in chemical industry is used as intermediate product in aniline industry, pharmaceutical industry, perfume industry, for aniline production which is used in production of polyisocyanates, vulcanization accelerators, polyurethanes, intermediates and dyes, artificial fibers, explosives, antioxidants, photographic materials, aniline-formaldehyde resins, drugs, anti-knock additives to gasolines (monomethylaniline – MMA).

Benzidine, m-nitroaniline, m-phenylene-diamine, p-aminosalicylic acid (PASA) are also obtained from nitrobenzene.

Nitrobenzene is used in many industries as solvent.
