1-Nitropyrene Usage And Synthesis
yellow to orange-brown or khaki powder
1-Nitropyrene has been reported to be a chemical photosensitizer, and one non-U.S. company was reported to have used it as an intermediate in the production of 1-azidopyrene, which is used in photosensitive printing. 1-Nitropyrene is available for research purposes at a purity of 97% or of greater than 99.5% with no more than 0.1% total dinitropyrenes and pyrene. It also is available as a reference material at a purity of 99.68% (IARC 1989).
ChEBI: A nitroarene that is pyrene substituted at the 1-position by a nitro group. A by-product of combustion, it is the predominant nitrated polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon emitted in a diesel engine.
Yellow needles or prisms (from ethanol).
Air & Water Reactions
Insoluble in water.
1-Nitropyrene may be sensitive to prolonged exposure to light. Reacts with ethanolic potassium hydroxide. Also reacts with zinc powder and ethanol with catalytic amounts of ammonium chloride or ammonia .
ACUTE/CHRONIC HAZARDS: When heated to decomposition 1-Nitropyrene emits toxic fumes of NOx.
Flash point data for 1-Nitropyrene are not available; however, 1-Nitropyrene is probably combustible.
Mutation data reported. Whenheated to decomposition it emits toxic vapors of NOx.
Confirmed carcinogen withexperimental carcinogenic, neoplastigenic, andtumorigenic data. Human mutation data reported. Whenheated to decomposition it emits toxic fumes of NOx.
1-Nitropyrene is reasonably anticipated to be a human carcinogenbased on sufficient evidence of carcinogenicity from studies in experimental animals.
