Nitrobenzene Production Cost Analysis 2020
Nitrobenzene was first manufactured in the year 1834. It is an organic compound that is water-insoluble and is pale yellow oil in colour with an almond-like odour. It freezes to give greenish-yellow crystals. It is manufactured on a large scale from benzene as a precursor to aniline. In the laboratory, it is rarely used as a solvent, especially for electrophilic reagents. It is often called oil of mirbane or nitrobenzol. Nitrobenzene melts at 5.85°C and boils at 210.9°C. While it is only slightly soluble in water, it is very soluble in ethanol, ether, and benzene.
Nitrobenzene is produced by nitration of benzene with a mixture of concentrated sulphuric acid, water, and nitric acid. The manufacturing of nitrobenzene is one of the most dangerous processes conducted in the chemical industry due to its exothermicity of the reaction. While nitrobenzene is widely used in the manufacturing of aniline, it is also used in the production of lubricating oils, dyes, drugs, pesticides, and synthetic rubber.
