Naphthalene is obtained from coal tar. Also, naphthalene can be isolated from a heavy pyrolysis resin (quenching oil), which is used in the pyrolysis process on ethylene plants. Another method of industrial production of naphthalene is the dealkylation of its alkyl derivatives.

Naphthalene is an important raw material of the chemical industry: it is used for the synthesis of phthalic anhydride, tetralin, decalin, various derivatives of naphthalene.
Naphthalene derivatives are used to produce dyes and explosives, in medicine, as an insecticide moth in the home.
Large single crystals are used as scintillators for registration of ionizing radiation.
Naphthalene in pyrotechnics is used as fuel and smoke generator (analog of anthracene). Depending on the formulation of compositions can both burn with the formation of soot (black smoke) and sublimate (white smoke).
