2,6-Dinitrotoluene Chemical Properties,Uses,Production

Chemical Properties

tan crystals


ChEBI: A dinitrotoluene carrying nitro substituents at positions 2 and 6.

General Description

Yellow to red solid or heated liquid with a slight odor. Solidifies in cool water. Solid and liquid sink in water.

Air & Water Reactions

Mixes slowly with water. Insoluble in water.

Reactivity Profile

2,6-Dinitrotoluene is sensitive to heat. 2,6-Dinitrotoluene may explode when exposed to heat or flame. 2,6-Dinitrotoluene can be detonated only by a very strong initiator. 2,6-Dinitrotoluene is incompatible with strong oxidizers. 2,6-Dinitrotoluene is also incompatible with caustics and metals such as tin and zinc. 2,6-Dinitrotoluene may react with reducing agents. 2,6-Dinitrotoluene will attack some forms of plastics, rubber and coatings.

Health Hazard

INHALATION, INGESTION OR SKIN ABSORPTION: Headache, weakness, nausea or dizziness, cyanosis, drowsiness, shortness of breath and collapse. Can burn eyes and skin.

Safety Profile

Poison by ingestion. A skin irritant. Questionable carcinogen with experimental tumorigenic data. Mutation data reported. When heated to decomposition it emits toxic fumes of NOx. See also 2,4-DINITROTOLUENE

Metabolic pathway

2-Amino-6-nitrotoluene, 2,6-dinitrobenzyl alcohol, 2- amino-6-nitrobenzyl alcohol, and the conjugates of the latter two alcohols are detected in the urine of male Wistar rats as metabolites of 2,6-dinitrotoluene (2,6- DNT). In addition to the metabolites identified in the urine, 2,6-dinitrobenzaldehyde is detected in the rat bile. Incubation of 2,6-DNT with a hepatic microsomal preparation gives 2,6-dinitrobenzyl alcohol. Incubation of benzyl alcohol with a microsomal plus cytosol preparation gives 2,6-dinitrobenzaldehyde, and incubation of 2,6-dinitrobenzaldehyde with cytosol preparations gives 2,6-dinitrobenzyl alcohol and 2,6- dinitrobenzoic acid.

Purification Methods

Crystallise it from acetone. EXPLOSIVE when dry.[Beilstein 5 III 761, 5 IV 866.]
