snx synthesis (SexNitroXylene)


right gys
tnt is made by gradually nitrogenating toluene with a mix of 3\1 sulphuric acid and nitric acid.mix heat cool,MNT
mix heat cool again,DMT
mix heat cool once more and TNT.
now based on my calculations, if xylene is used instead of toluene, both methyl groups on he benzene ring will be nitrogenated at the same time.
am i wrong?
well if im not....hehe, this would be nice explosif.i guess exactly twice as powerful that tnt.

I dont think that more heating would actually add another nitro group to the ring, in fact i think it'll simply go "boom" . Also i think that Xylene can only be nitrated to the Ortho- Position (1,3-di(x)xylene) so you will end, if your very lucky, with 2,6-dinitro-1,4-dimethylbenzene, which I suspect to be dangerous. Oh and also, the -Methyl group in TNT isn't methylated, the nitro group are at position 2,4,6 on the benzene ring

BTW: the 6 prefix is Hexa-

ur right...sorry


damn.....ur right....
so could i just substitute all the hydrogens with nitrate?

could it be made.
how powerful would it be.

What you are talking about is hexanitrobenzene, there is a thread on it here.

And yes, it does exist, although its preparation proves to have some hurdles.

Except that the nitro groups go on the benzene ring, not the methyl groups. So the best you're going to do is 3 nitro groups.

Please continue this discussion in the HNB thread.
