IUPAC Name: Propylbenzene

Source: Used in the synthesis of many chemicals. Occurs naturally in coal and petroleum.

Summary: N-Propylbenzene (propylbenzene) is a benzene ring with a propyl group attached. It is a colorless liquid at room temperature and is soluble in water up to 23.4 mg/L at 25 C. It has a density of 0.862 g/mL. It has many uses as a solvent, and is used in the synthesis of many chemicals. It is also a naturally occurring chemical in petroleum and coal. Koc values of 676 – 955 indicate low to moderate mobility within soil. Important fate processes in soil and water include biodegradation, hydrolysis, and volatilization. Bioaccumulation is expected to be high.
