Aniline is a chemical compound that first converts benzene into nitrobenzene, then hydrogenates nitrobenzene. The appearance of this oil-like compound is a colorless liquid.
Aniline dissolves in alcohol and ether and has little solubility in water. This substance is toxic and should not be inhaled. In case of contact with skin and eyes, it causes irritation. Due to heat, it decomposes into very toxic nitrogen oxide gases.
