Layman's explanation: Aniline is a colorless (when pure) to brown oily liquid with an aromatic, pungent odor and a burning taste. Aniline is used in the manufacture of perfumes, resins, varnishes and printing inks. It is also used in the synthesis of explosives, rubber accelerators, isocyanates, herbicides and fungicides. Other uses of aniline include an analytical reagent in paper chemistry, and in the synthesis of intermediates for artificial sweeteners and isocyanate. Aniline, in addition, is a catalyst and stabilizer in the synthesis of hydrogen peroxide and cellulose. Aniline is classified as a probable human carcinogen. Liquid aniline is mildly irritating to the eyes and may cause corneal damage. It is toxic if ingested, inhaled, or contacted by skin; Methemoglobinemia is the most prominent symptom of aniline poisoning in humans, resulting in cyanosis (a purplish blue skin color). Aniline has been detected in tobacco smoke, so people who smoke or breathe in second-hand smoke may also be exposed to aniline.
