Physical properties of Aromatic Amine:

(i) Physical state: Aromatic amines are colorless liquid or solid compounds having an unpleasant odour. They become brown colored by oxidation with light or air. They are poisonous or toxic. Readily formed aniline is an oily liquid.

(ii) Melting point & Boiling Point: M.P & B.P increase with the rise of molecular mass. Melting point & boiling point of aromatic amines are higher than that of aliphatic ones.

(iii) Solubility: They are slightly soluble in water but completely soluble in organic solvents. Aniline is more soluble in water than n-hexyl amine.
