It acts as a precursor for the preparation of N-(1,3-dimethylbutyl)-N′-phenyl-p-phenylene diamine (6PPD), which finds application as an antiozonant in tires. Its aqueous solution serves as a developer for PMMA electron beam lithography resist.

Solubility
Miscible with ethanol, ether, acetone, benzene and chloroform. Slightly miscible with water.
