Camphor is used in the preparation of mothballs. It acts as a plasticizer for nitrocellulose, and an ingredient for fireworks and explosive munitions. It is useful in the treatment of sprains, swellings and inflammation. It is also used to synthesize carbon nanotubes by chemical vapor deposition process of camphor.
