Aniline, also known as aminobenzene or phenylamine, is an organic chemical compound which consists of a phenyl group attached to an amino group. It is oily and colourless in appearance with an unpleasant odour. Aniline is a flammable liquid which is slightly soluble in water, and slowly resinifies and oxidizes in air. Nowadays, aniline is gaining traction as it is used to manufacture a wide array of end-products ranging from aramid fibre and polyurethane foam to pharmaceuticals.
