Product Application

Our Dinitrotoluene(DNT) is produced by nitration of toluene with nitrating acid (actually it is mixture of nitric acid and sulfuric acid), it is state-of-the-art that we achieved commercial specifications with DNT contents (as the total content of 2,4-DNT and 2,6-DNT isomers) more than 98.5%. Hereby we used 2,4-Dinitrotoluene or Dinitrotoluene as commodity name to distinguish from 2,6-DNT. Except for the isomer mixtures, We also have some quantity of 2,4-DNT and 2,6-DNT to be seperated and sold commercially, if there is any demand of high purity of DNT products for dyestuff and/or intermediate manufacturing like 2,6-diaminotoluene eg., please contact with our sales people in contact area.

DNT is known as an important intermediate in chemical synthesis, and most DNT is used in the production of toluene diisocyanate(TDI) which is used to produce flexible polyurethane foams. DNT is hydrogenated to produce toluene diamine, which in turn is phosgenated to form toluene diisocyanate(TDI). Other uses include the explosives industry, dyes, plastics styrofoam, plastics, artificial leather etc.. It is not used by itself as an explosive, but is converted to TNT, or used as an additive with other compounds.

Dinitrotoluene is frequently used as a plasticizer, deterrent coating, and burn rate modifier in propellants (eg. smokeless gunpowders). As it is carcinogenic and toxic, modern formulations tend to avoid its use. In this application it is often used together with dibutyl phthalate.
