General description

Ethylbenzene is a colorless liquid, which has an aromatic odor. It is widely used in the manufacturing of styrene and as a solvent. It is insoluble in water.

Application

Ethylbenzene may be used as an analytical standard for the determination of the analyte in paints, engine oils, biological samples, water and air samples by various chromatography techniques. It may also be used as a standard to spike pump oil to form excellent standard generator for solid-phase microextraction (SPME).
