Nitrobenzene is synthesised by nitrating benzene using a solution of concentrated sulphuric acid, water, and nitric acid. This combination is sometimes referred to as "mixed acid." Nitrobenzene is also used to conceal disagreeable scents in shoe and floor polishes, leather treatments, paint solvents, and other products, in addition to agricultural applications. Nitrobenzene, when redistilled as oil of mirbane, was utilised as a low-cost scent for soaps.
Molecular Formulae- C6H5NO2
Alternative Names- Nitrobenzol, Oil of Mirbane
BENEFITS AND USES-
- Nitrobenzene encourages seed germination, makes plants bushier, and produces more flowers.
- It repels pests like slugs and voles.
- It aids in the treatment and prevention of magnesium and sulphur deficiency, stunted development, and yield decrease.
- It promotes the production of chlorophyll.
- It is simple to use at planting or during the growing season.
- Nitrobenzene is easily used with other fertilisers.
HOW IT WORKS-
- It works by providing crops with essential nutrients like carbon and nitrogen.
- Carbon and nitrogen are necessary for the synthesis of chlorophyll, which is essential for photosynthesis.
TIME OF APPLICATION-
- It can be used all throughout the year.
- It should be used at least once a month to avoid the leaves turning yellow and curling on your plants.
- For spraying, the recommended usage is 5% weight by volume.
- For solid application, use 5-8 kg/acre.
HOW TO USE-
- Our nitrobenzene should be added to a sprayer or mixing tank that is already filled with fresh water.
- Apply nitrobenzene first, before using any other agrochemical, to fully benefit from our product's outstanding dissolving qualities.
