2-Aminodiphenyl is a white crystalline powder, with a melting point of 122-123°C and a boiling point of 220-230°C. It is soluble in ethanol, ethyl ether and chloroform, and is insoluble in water.
2-Aminodiphenyl is an organic compound with the chemical formula C12H11N. It is a member of the aminophenols, a group of compounds containing an amine group attached to a phenol group. It is used in the manufacture of certain dyes, resins, plastics, pharmaceuticals and other products.
2-Aminodiphenyl is used in the production of azo dyes, which are used in the dyeing of textiles, leather, paper and food. It is also used in the manufacture of resins and plastics, such as polystyrene and phenolic resins. These resins are used in paints, adhesives, coatings and insulation materials. 2-Aminodiphenyl is also used in the production of a variety of pharmaceuticals, including antacids, sedatives and anti-inflammatory drugs.
2-Aminodiphenyl is produced by the reaction of aniline with anhydrous hydrogen chloride. It is then further reacted with other compounds to produce the desired products.
2-Aminodiphenyl is toxic if ingested or inhaled, and should be handled with caution. It should be stored in a cool, dry place away from sources of heat and ignition. Protective clothing and eye protection should be worn when handling this chemical.
2-Aminodiphenyl is an important intermediate in the production of a range of dyes, resins, plastics and pharmaceuticals. It is toxic, and should be handled with caution, and stored in a cool, dry place away from sources of heat and ignition.
