Chlorobenzene is used in organic synthesis and dyestuffs. It is also used as a solvent for adhesives, drugs, rubber, paints and dry cleaning, and as a fiber-swelling agent in textile processing. It is utilized in chemoenzymatic synthesis of (+)-aspicilin and cyclohexane by hydrogenation over colloidal Pt nanocatalysts under ambient conditions.
