Product Description

Nitrotoluene is a chemical compound that is prepared via nitration of toluene in the nitration process, where nitro groups are introduced to the toluene molecule. This technique traditionally is performed by a blend of nitric and sulfuric acid. Nitrotoluene primarily comes in three isomers: ortho-nitrotoluene (o-nitrotoluene), meta-nitrotoluene (m-nitrotoluene), and para-nitrotoluene (p-nitrotoluene), where the nitro group is attached to the positions C1, C2, or C4 of the benzene ring.

Nitrotoluene, having the key function of a building block of many other chemicals, is of critical importance to the chemical industry which relies on it. Nitrotoluene derivates are important production one of which is toluene diisocyanate which is used by polyurethane foam manufacturers. Research on nitrotoluene has confirmed its efficiency, attributed to its use in many fields. It is a platform for the development of different valuable high-demand chemicals and materials that in turn support sectors such as agriculture and consumer products. Agricultural nitrotoluene derivatives are commonly used to give rise to efficient pesticides that can enhance crop yields and quality.

Europe Nitro Toluene Price

In Q3 FY 2023, the European market for Nitrotoluene experienced a significant downturn in July due to decreased energy costs and reduced import prices. Although there was a slight recovery in the subsequent months, the overall demand remained weak, influenced by factors such as rising interest rates which curtailed consumer spending and led to increased inventory levels. The construction sector's continued underperformance further suppressed demand for Nitrotoluene-derived products like plastics. Despite these challenges, prices managed to stabilize somewhat, supported by modest demand from the automotive and renewable energy sectors.
