Properties and stability

1. It can be sublimated, so you should wear protective clothing when using it.

2. Exist in smoke.

Storage method

Should be sealed and stored away from light.

Synthesis method

Using the by-product distillation residue of phenol produced by the sulfonation method as raw material, the phenylphenol fraction is intercepted through vacuum distillation, and then the difference in solubility of o-phenylphenol and p-phenylphenol in trichlorethylene is used to realize the isomerization separation. It can also be obtained by hydrolysis of p-chlorobiphenyl at high temperatures.


Used as dye; intermediate for resin and rubber. The red light sensitizing and green light sensitizing dyes synthesized by this product are one of the main raw materials for color films and are also used as analytical reagents. Colorimetric determination of acetaldehyde and lactic acid, quantitative determination of muramic acid. Inhibitor of deoxyribonuclease I. Intermediates for dyes, resins and rubbers, fungicides, solubilizers for water-soluble paints.
