1-Nitronaphthalene Usage And Synthesis
  • Chemical Propertiesyellow crystalline solid
  • UsesUsually used to study excited state dynamics of 1-nitropthalene in nonpolar, aprotic and protic solvents.
  • DefinitionChEBI: A mononitronaphthalene substituted by a nitro group at position 1.
  • Safety ProfilePoison by intraperitoneal route. Mutation data reported. A skin, eye, and mucous membrane irritant. Flammable solid and combustible liquid when exposed to heat or flame. To fight fire, use CO2, dry chemical, or water spray. Explosive reaction with nitric acid + sulfuric acid above 60°C. Forms a sensitive explosive mixture with tetranitromethane. When heated to decomposition it emits toxic fumes of NOx. See also 2-NITRONAPHTHALENE and NITRO COMPOUNDS OF AROMATIC HYDROCARBONS.
  • Purification MethodsFractionally distil 1-nitronaphthalene under reduced pressure, then crystallise it from EtOH, aqueous EtOH or heptane. Chromatograph it on alumina with *benzene/pet ether as eluent. It sublimes in vacuo. The 1:1 picrate complex has m 72o (from EtOH). [Beilstein 5 H 553, 5 III 1593, 5 IV 1673.]
