Naphtha (petroleum), light aliphatic is a complex mixture of hydrocarbons derived from petroleum. Naphtha light aliphatic is a light hydrocarbon fraction obtained from the distillation of petroleum. It consists primarily of aliphatic hydrocarbons having carbon numbers predominantly in the range of C5 through C12 and boiling in the range of approximately 35-205 degrees Celsius.
Naphtha light aliphatic is used as a solvent in a variety of applications, including the manufacture of paints, varnishes, lacquers, rubber, pharmaceuticals, and other products. It is also used as a fuel for household and industrial applications. It is also used as a diluent for fuel oils, and for extracting oil from shale and tar sands.
Naphtha light aliphatic is a clear, colorless to pale yellow liquid with a petroleum-like odor. It is highly flammable and volatile. It is miscible with most organic solvents, but is immiscible with water.
Naphtha light aliphatic is produced by the distillation of crude oil. The boiling range of the naphtha light aliphatic fraction is typically 35-205 degrees Celsius. It is obtained by further distillation of the fractions obtained from the atmospheric and vacuum distillation of crude oil.
Naphtha light aliphatic is toxic and can cause irritation to the skin, eyes, and mucous membranes. Inhalation of vapors may cause drowsiness and dizziness, as well as irritation to the eyes, nose, and throat. Prolonged exposure to vapors may cause eye and respiratory tract irritation and headache. Ingestion of naphtha light aliphatic may cause nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, and diarrhea. Prolonged or repeated exposure may cause liver and kidney damage.
