Dinitrotoluene
DNT
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.

Dinitrotoluene Production

This feasibility study provides an economic analysis of Dinitrotoluene (DNT) production from toluene and nitric acid in the United States via a two-step nitration process. Initially, nitric and sulfuric acids are reacted with toluene to form mononitrotoluene, which is further nitrated to produce DNT.

Toluenediamine Production

This study approaches a techno-economic analysis of Toluenediamine (TDA) production from toluene via dinitrotoluene (DNT) considering a plant located in the United States . In this process, toluene is first dinitrated to dinitrotoluene (DNT) in two steps. Then, DNT is hydrogenated to TDA.

The cost analyses presented in the report TDA E11A target a 140 kta (kilometric tons per annun) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

Toluene Diisocyanate Production from DNT, CO and Methanol

This report presents the economics of Toluene Diisocyanate (TDI) production from dinitrotoluene (DNT) in the United States. The process examined is a typical reductive carbonylation. DNT initially is reacted with carbon monoxide and methanol to form toluene dimethylcarbamate, which is then thermally decomposed to produce TDI.
