General description

2-Nitrotoluene is a nitroaromatic compound. Multi-functional magnetic resins having high surface area and ion exchange efficiency (GMA30-1 and GMA30-2) were developed and were tested for the desorption of 2-nitrotolene. Its dioxygenation by nitrobenzene dioxygenase has been studied to evaluate the isotope fractionation. It has been reported as nitroaromatic explosive. Terbium-based magnetic metal-organic framework (MOF) nanospheres have been fabricated, which can detect the trace quantities of 2-nitrotoluene.


2-Nitrotoluene may be employed as nitrogen supplement in the culture medium of Pseudomonas sp. strain ClS1. It may be employed as carbon and energy supplement in the culture medium of Pseudomonas sp. strain JS42.

In this work, we present novel kinds of Fe3O4@Tb-BTC magnetic metal-organic framework (MOF) nanospheres which possess both magnetic characteristics and fluorescent properties using a layer by layer assembly technique. The structure and morphology of the as-prepared Fe3O4@Tb-BTC were systematically characterized...

Oxygenation of aromatic rings is a frequent initial step in the biodegradation of persistent contaminants, and the accompanying isotope fractionation is increasingly used to assess the extent of transformation in the environment. Here, we systematically investigated the dioxygenation of two...

Two novel multi-functional magnetic resins named GMA30-1 and GMA30-2 were fabricated and investigated for the removal of 4-nitrotoluene-2-sulfonic acid (NTS) and 2-nitrotoluene (o-MNT). Strong base resin (GMA30-1) and weak base resin (GMA30-2) possess large surface area of 718m(2)/g and 559m(2)/g...
