Naphthalene, the simplest of the fused or condensed ring hydrocarbon compounds composed of two benzene rings sharing two adjacent carbon atoms; chemical formula, C 1 0 H is an important hydrocarbon raw material that gives rise to a host of substitution products used in the manufacture of dyestuffs and synthetic resins. Naphthalene is the most abundant single . Naphthalene is a white, volatile, solid polycyclic hydrocarbon with a strong mothball odor. Naphthalene is obtained from either coal tar or petroleum distillation and is primarily used to manufacture phthalic anhydride, but is also used in moth re to naphthalene is associated with hemolytic anemia, damage to the liver and neurological system, cataracts and . Naphthalene is released to the air from the burning of coal and oil and from the use of mothballs. Coal tar production, wood preserving, and other industries release small amounts. (1) Typical air concentrations of naphthalene in cities are about parts per billion (ppb). (1) Naphthalene has also been detected in tobacco smoke. (1). Naphthalene, a miscellaneous indoor toxicant, occurs in tars, petroleum, tanning preparations, and mothballs (Witschi and Last, ; Oehme and Kore, ). It is also released in cigarette smoke and from termites parasitizing houses. The lowest canine lethal dose is mg/kg, but cats are more sensitive. Mothballs weigh near or 4 g.

Naphthalene is the most simple, commonly found, and most water-soluble PAHs in the environment. It is produced from coal tar fraction by crystallization and distillation. It is often used as dispersants in natural and synthetic rubbers, in the production of naphthalene sulfonate superplasticizers for concrete, in paints, tanning agents in the leather industry, in the . Also known as: White Tar, Tar Camphor, Mothballs, Moth Flakes, Naphthalin Chemical reference number (CAS): Naphthalene is either a white solid or a liquid with a strong odor like mothballs. It’s used to make dyes, explosives, plastics, lubricants, and is found naturally in crude oil. It is also found in coal tar wastes at former manufactured gas plants. Coal tars were .
