Monochlorobenzene, also known as chlorobenzene or monochlorobenzene, is a clear, flammable liquid with a sweet odor that is widely used in the production of dyes, resins, and pesticides. It is also used in the synthesis of drugs, as a solvent, and as a fumigant.
When rubber is exposed to monochlorobenzene, the rubber is likely to become brittle and crack due to the chemical's high volatility and corrosive nature. In addition, the chemical can cause the rubber to swell and distort, leading to cracks and other physical damages. Moreover, the chemical can cause changes in the rubber's molecular structure, leading to further mechanical and physical degradation.
