N-Methyl-4-nitroaniline Usage And Synthesis

Uses

N-methyl-4-nitroaniline is a stabilizer for gunpowder, a desensitizing agent for molten cast explosive TNAZ, a widely used organic intermediate, and N-methyl-4-nitroaniline can be used as a reference substance by its polarizing properties.
N-methyl-4-nitroaniline is an attractive candidate for its appealing capability to retain the nitrogen oxides, good thermal stability, and facile synthesis from abundant and inexpensive starting materials.

Biodegradation

N-Methyl-4-nitroaniline is used as an additive to lower the melting temperature of energetic materials in the synthesis of insensitive explosives. Although the biotransformation of N-Methyl-4-nitroaniline under anaerobic condition has been reported, its aerobic microbial degradation has not been documented yet. A soil microcosms study showed the efficient aerobic degradation of N-Methyl-4-nitroaniline by the inhabitant soil microorganisms.

Chemical Properties

brownish-yellow crystalline powder

General Description

Brownish-yellow prisms with violet reflex (from ethanol) or yellow powder.

Air & Water Reactions

N-Methyl-4-nitroaniline may be sensitive to prolonged exposure to air. Insoluble in water.

Reactivity Profile

N-Methyl-4-nitroaniline has a vigorous exothermic reaction with carbaryl sulfate when heated above 167° F.

Fire Hazard

Flash point data for N-Methyl-4-nitroaniline are not available; however, N-Methyl-4-nitroaniline is probably combustible.

Purification Methods

Crystallise the aniline from aqueous EtOH. [Beilstein 12 H 714.]
