Nitration reactions are notably used for the production of explosives, for example the conversion of guanidine to nitroguanidine and the conversion of toluene to trinitrotoluene (TNT).
Since the mid-1800s nitroaromatics have been used extensively as explosives and propellants and the following suite also contains commonly associated by-products and metabolites.
Nitroaromatics we work with
- Hexogen (RDX)
- Octogen (HMX)
- 2,4,6-Trinitrophenol (Picric acid)
- 2,4,6-Trinitrotoluene (TNT)
