1,8-DINITROPYRENE Usage And Synthesis
  • Chemical Properties1,8-Dinitropyrene is a nitro-substituted polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon that exists at room temperature as a yellow fluffy or light-brown crystalline solid (IARC 1989). It has a molecular weight of 292.3 and a melting point of over 300°C (HSDB 2009).
  • Uses1,8-Dinitropyrene has been reported to be a photosensitizer; however,there is no evidence that it has ever been used commercially for this or any other purpose (IARC 1989). 1,8-Dinitropyrene is available for research purposes at a purity of at least 99% and in 14C- or 3H-labeled form at a radiochemical purity of at least 98%.
  • Safety ProfileConfirmed carcinogen with experimental carcinogenic data. Human mutation data reported. When heated to decomposition it emits toxic fumes of NOx
  • Carcinogenicity1,8-Dinitropyrene is reasonably anticipated to be a human carcinogen based on sufficient evidence of carcinogenicity from studies in experimental animals.
