1-Methoxy-2,4-dinitrobenzene Usage And Synthesis
  • Chemical Propertiesyellow crystals or crystalline powder
  • UsesIt can be used as a dye ingredient. It is one of the insensitive nitroaromatic ingredients increasingly used as a replacement for 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene (TNT) in munitions.
  • DefinitionChEBI: A member of the class of dinitroanisoles that is 2-nitroanisole in which the hydrogen para to the methoxy group is replaced by a second nitro group.
  • Safety ProfilePoison by ingestion. Mutation data reported. When heated to decomposition it emits toxic fumes of NOx. See also NITRO COMPOUNDS of AROMATIC HYDROCARBONS and NITRATES.
  • Purification MethodsPurify the anisole by repeated crystallisation from EtOH, MeOH or H2O and dry it in a vacuum desiccator over P2O5. The naphthalene complex has m 69o (from EtOH). [Beilstein 6 III 869, 6 IV 1385.
