  • p-Aminophenol is a colorless crystalline solid. It is easily oxidizes on air coloring in deep brown tint.


  • 3-Aminophenol has been prepared by treating resorcinol with ammonia under pressure, or fusion of metanilic acid with sodium hydroxide at elevated temperatures.

  • The development of automated colorimetric method for the quantitative determination of p-aminophenol with a Cobas Mira analyzer. An absorbed aniline dose is extensively oxidized to p-aminophenol, which is excreted in urine mainly as glucurono- and sulfo- conjugates.

  • Biotransformation products of hydroxylaminobenzene and aminophenol produced by 3-nitrophenol-grown cells of Pseudomonas putida 2NP8, a strain grown on 2- and 3-nitrophenol, were characterized.


  • p-Aminophenol is used in production of sulfur and azo dyes.

  • p-Aminophenol and it derivatives of metol, glycine and amidol are photo developers.
