General description

9-Nitroanthracene belongs to the class of nitrated-polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, found to be persistent in the environment. It is produced from direct sources such as diesel, gasoline exhaust and by the gas-phase reactions of PAHs with oxides of nitrogen.

Application

9-Nitroanthracene may be used as a certified reference material for the quantification of the analyte in the following:
  • Aerosol samples using direct infusion into an atmospheric pressure photoionization high-resolution mass spectrometer (APPI-HRMS).
  • Air and diesel particulate reference materials using pressurized-fluid extraction (PFE) with normal-phase liquid chromatography (LC) followed by gas chromatography coupled to mass spectrometry (GC-MS) in negative ion chemical ionization (NICI) mode.

We report results of femtosecond-resolved ex-periments which elucidate the time scale for the primary photoinduced events in the model nitroaromatic compound 9-nitroanthracene. Through time-resolved fluorescence measurements, we observed the ultrafast decay of the initially excited singlet state, and through transient...

The aerobic and hypoxic metabolism of 2-nitroanthracene (2-NA) and 9-nitroanthracene (9-NA), two components of diesel exhaust, was studied and the mutagenicities of the parent compounds and their metabolites were compared. 2-NA was metabolized by 3-methylcholanthrene-induced rat liver microsomes under aerobic...

Xanthine oxidase, a mammalian nitroreductase, catalyzed the covalent binding of a series of nitro-polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (nitro-PAHs) trans-dihydrodiols to DNA. Some of the trans-dihydrodiols bound to DNA to a greater extent than their parent nitro-PAHs; however, when the dihydrodiol moiety...

Aerobic metabolism of 9-nitroanthracene by uninduced rat liver microsomes produced four metabolites identified as trans-1,2- and 3,4-dihydrodiols, 1,2,3,4-tetrahydrotetrol of 9-nitroanthracene, and anthraquinone. Further metabolism of the predominant metabolite, 9-nitroanthracene trans-3,4-dihyrodiol, yielded a 1,2,3,4-tetrahydrotetrol with a trans-cis-trans configuration, indicating that a...
