Dinitrotoluene (a.k.a. DNT) refers to a group of isomers produced by dinitration of toluene. The 2,4- and 2,6 isomers are obtained in greater quantities from this reaction, with concentrations of 75 wt% and 19 wt%, respectively. The dinitrotoluenes are carcinogenic and a moderate fire and explosion hazard when exposed to heat or flame. 2,4-Dinitrotoluene is an intermediate used in the manufacture of toluene diisocyanate (TDI) and dyestuffs. Dinitrotoluene is also used as the precursor of trinitrotoluene (TNT), a common explosive.
Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand reports examining Dinitrotoluene production. Each study describes an industrial plant, including main process units and site infrastructure, and presents an independent analysis of capital and operating costs. All reports are based on the most recent economic data available (2019/20).
