Description

Application

Isopropyl nitrate is a monopropellant with large detonation length scale. This can increase the diagnostic resolution as a result of which it can be used as a substitute for nitromethane, to study homogenous liquid explosives. It can also be used in the synthesis of 1,2-dimethoxy-4-(nitromethyl)benzene, a nitro alkane derivative which can be converted to the corresponding carboxylic acid in a continuous flow reactor via Nef oxidation method.

General description

Isopropyl nitrate can be obtained by nitrating isopropyl alcohol with nitric acid and urea.
