Aniline & Aniline Technologies

Aniline (also known as phenylamine or aminobenzene), C6H5NH2, is a colorless, oily liquid. Most of the world’s aniline production goes into the manufacture of MDI. Aniline is also used in rubber-processing chemicals, agricultural intermediates, dyes, pigments, pharmaceutical chemicals and specialty organic fibers.

DuPont Aniline technology is now available through direct licensing. Secure shipping options for large quantities are available for delivery by truck, rail, barge, and ship.
