Nomination Summary for 2-Bromo-4,6-dinitroaniline (N79472)

2-Bromo-4,6-dinitroaniline

Specific Substances: 2-Bromo-4,6-dinitroaniline

Nomination Date: 09/00/1979

Nominator: NCI

Rationale: Potential high exposure since it is used as an intermediate in two commercially significant azo dyes, C.I. Disperse Violet and C.I. Disperse Dye (C.I.11205). In addition there is a lack of toxicology data. This chemical is a representative of the aryl nitro class and has a good potential as an alkylating agent.
