This has allowed a comparison of the exclusive effect of distilled water against that of 2% Para dichlorobenzene. Water has been shown to have a ceruminolytic action whereas 2% Para-dichlorobenzene is a wax softening agent and so the disintegration of wax after using water may be more effective.
According to many articles, frequent exposure to chemicals such as dichlorobenzene, formaldehyde and phthalates found in most air care products could lead to serious health issues such as hormone disorder, inborn defects, respiratory and cardiovascular diseases.

About 20 of the homes had 1,2 dichloroethane and 1,4 dichlorobenzene and other volatile compounds at more than 100 times the EPA's screening levels.

The solvent may be dimethylformamide, methanol, water, dimethyl sulfoxide, or ortho dichlorobenzene. The metal salt may be a metal acetate, a metal nitrate, a metal carbonyl, or a metal acetylacetonate.
The root tips of tuber mustard with different length were dipped in five kinds of chemicals (ice water, colchicine, 8- Hydroxyquinoline, saturated 1-Bromonaphthalene and P- Dichlorobenzene) in different pretreatment time (1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 h).
The headline of a July news release from NIEHS inappropriately stated that the chemical 1,4 dichlorobenzene, which the agency said may impair lung function, is found "in many air fresheners." In an interview with the Raleigh, NC, News & Observer and a media advisory issued immediately thereafter, CSPA noted that the chemical, which is more commonly known as para-dichlorobenzene (PDCB), may still be found in some urinal blocks, mothballs and hanging deodorizers.
We fabricated CN-DOQA from the blend with effective polymer donor P3HT in dichlorobenzene by spin coating and blend solutions were prepared in 1, 2-dicholobenzene with different ratios.
Cadmium acetate dihydrate and P3HT were dissolved in mixed solvents containing dichlorobenzene (DCB) and dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO).
