Summary: 3,3'-Dichlorobenzidine is a gray-to-purple colored crystalline solid. It changes from a solid to a gas very slowly. 3,3'-Dichlorobenzidine salt is the major form in actual use. It is a stable, off-white colored crystalline solid that does not evaporate. Neither 3,3'-dichlorobenzidine nor its salt are found naturally in the environment. They are manufactured for pigments for printing inks, textiles, plastics and enamels, paint, leather, and rubber.
