p-Chloroaniline Properties


Molecule Structure Image



p-Chloroaniline is a organochlorine compound. It is a precursor to the widely used antimicrobial and bacteriocide Chlorhexidine. p-Chloroaniline is prepared by hydrogenation of 4-nitrochlorobenzene, which in turn is prepared by nitration of chlorobenzene. p-Chloroaniline is an important building block used in the chemical industry for the production of pesticides, drugs, and dyestuffs. It is a precursor to the widely used antimicrobial and bacteriocide chlorhexidine and is used in the manufacture of pesticides, including pyraclostrobin, anilofos, monolinuron and chlorphthalim.
