Description

General description

2,4-Dinitrotoluene is classified under the group of nitroaromatic compounds, which are organic nitro derivatives of analytical research interest. It finds wide use as a precursor of 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene (TNT) explosive as well as dyes and urethane products. 2,4-Dinitrotoluene is regarded as a potential threat to human health even when present in trace amounts.

Application

2,4-Dinitrotoluene may be used as an analytical standard for the determination of the analyte in forensic samples, explosive-contaminated groundwater samples, industrial effluents and seawater samples by various chromatographic techniques.
