1-Nitropyrene Usage And Synthesis

Chemical Properties

yellow to orange-brown or khaki powder

Uses

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).

Definition

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.

General Description

Yellow needles or prisms (from ethanol).

Air & Water Reactions

Insoluble in water.

Reactivity Profile

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 .

Health Hazard

ACUTE/CHRONIC HAZARDS: When heated to decomposition 1-Nitropyrene emits toxic fumes of NOx.

Fire Hazard

Flash point data for 1-Nitropyrene are not available; however, 1-Nitropyrene is probably combustible.

Safety Profile

Mutation data reported. Whenheated to decomposition it emits toxic vapors of NOx.

Safety Profile

Confirmed carcinogen withexperimental carcinogenic, neoplastigenic, andtumorigenic data. Human mutation data reported. Whenheated to decomposition it emits toxic fumes of NOx.

Carcinogenicity

1-Nitropyrene is reasonably anticipated to be a human carcinogenbased on sufficient evidence of carcinogenicity from studies in experimental animals.
