Properties and stability

Avoid contact with strong oxidants and acids.

Poisonous. Irritating to skin. The equipment in the production site must be sealed and well ventilated. Production operators should wear protective equipment.

Easily oxidized and discolored when exposed to air. Irritating.

Storage method

1. Store in a cool, ventilated warehouse. Keep away from fire and heat sources. The packaging is sealed. They should be stored separately from oxidants and acidic substances, and avoid mixed storage. Equipped with the appropriate variety and quantity of fire equipment. Suitable materials should be available in the storage area to contain spills.

2. Packed in iron drums or cardboard drums lined with plastic bags. Net weight per barrel is 25kg or 50kg. Store and transport according to general chemical regulations.

Synthesis method

O-nitro-p-cresol is obtained by reduction with alkali sulfide or catalytic hydrogenation. Starting from the nitration of p-cresol, the raw material consumption quota is: p-cresol industrial product 963kg/t, nitric acid (96%) 661kg/t, sulfuric acid (92.5%) 2127kg/t, alkali sulfide (60%) 2425kg/t, soda ash 20kg/ t.

1. Use p-cresol as raw material, prepare a certain concentration of mixed acid with nitric acid and sulfuric acid for nitrification. After the reaction is completed, the waste acid is separated, washed and distilled and reduced with alkali sulfide, and finally the finished product is obtained by acid precipitation, crystallization and drying.

2. Hydrogenation reduction method is the same as method 1, but is carried out in the presence of a catalyst. Hydrogenation reduction is used instead of alkali sulfide reduction.


Dye intermediates. Used to prepare polyester fiber fluorescent whitening agent DT and plastic fluorescent whitening agent PF.
