The organic compound 1,3-Benzenediamine also known as m-phenylenediamine has the formula C6H8N2. It’s an o-phenylenediamine and p-phenylenediamine isomer. This aromatic diamine is a colourless solid that appears like needles, but when exposed to air, it becomes red or purple because of oxidation products. In the sample, it comes as Colorless flakes but may darken upon storage.
It is used to make aramid fibres, epoxy resins, wire enamel coatings, and polyurea elastomers. Among other things, it is also used as an accelerator for adhesive resins as a component of leather and textile dyes. Basic Brown 1 (Bismarck Brown), Basic Orange 2, Direct Black 38, and Developed Black BH are the colours used in Basic Brown 1 (Bismarck Brown). It is a “coupling agent” in hair dyeing that produces blue hues.
