N-propylbenzene is an alkylbenzene or a benzene with one of its hydrogens replaced by a propyl group. It is a colorless or light-yellow liquid, which is denser than water. It is usually insoluble in water. It is toxic in nature, if inhaled or consumed. Its boiling point is 86°F and it is highly flammable. There exist different methods of manufacturing N-propylbenzene. These include the reaction of diethyl sulfate with benzyl magnesium chloride, alkylation of N-propyl chloride with benzene by the inclusion of aluminum chloride, fractional distillation of petroleum reformate, and the reaction of diethyl sulfate with benzyl magnesium chloride. N-propyl benzene is manufactured either using the analytic laboratory method or the OSHA chemical sampling.
