Di nitro toluene is a organic compound pale yellow in colour, solid crystalline in nature and is also called as precursor to trinitrotoluene and is mainly produced as precursor to toluene diisocynate. Di nitro toluene does not naturally occur in the environment. It is usually produced by mixing toluene with nitric and sulphuric acid. It is notomatic explosive that exist in six isomers : 2,4- and 2,6-DNT are the two major forms of the chemical . The other four forms (2,3-DNT, 2,5-DNT, 3-4-DNT, and 3,5-DNT) make up only 5% of the technical grade.
Di nitro Toluene mixtures is mainly used in the production of polyurethane polymers. DNT is considered toxic to most organisms chronic exposures may result in organ damage.
Di Nitro toluene Market: Drivers & Restraints
Increasing demand for polyurethane foam is anticipated to boost the demand for Dinitrotoulene during the upcoming years. Major drivers of polyeurathane market are regulations and energy efficiency (for rigid foam installation), an increasing world population, especially a rising middle class in emerging markets, and increased use of refrigeration.
Di Nitro toluene needs to be handled very carefully and is considered as major hazardour chemical; due to its highly toxic and carsogenic nature. Use of Dinotroloulene in manufacturing of munitions and other chemical products have contributed to extensive soil and groundwater contamination. It is expected to remain in water for a long time because of its relatively low volatility and moderate water solubility unless broken down by light oxygen or biota

Di Nitro toluene Market- Segmentation
Dinitroluene is very toxic and carcinogenic in nature hence modern formulations tend to avoid its usage. Most DNT is used in the production of touluene disocyanate which is used to produce polyeurathane foam. DNT is hydrogenetaed to manufacture 2,4 toluenediamine which in turn is phosgeneted to give toluene diisocyanate. Other applications of Dinitroluene include in that of production of explosive for which it works as gelatinizing , and waterproofing agent and as an intermediate in dye processes and in smokeless gunpowdes, herbicides, plastics and in automobile airbags.
China is expected to be the largest market for Di Nitro toluene market followed by North America and western Europe. Regionally, Asia pacific is estimated to consumer, more than 50% of the DinitrolueneChina being a major consumer, followed by North America and Europe
Di Nitro toluene Market: Key Players
