Dinitrotoluene (C7H6N2O4) is a explosive, yellow crystalline solid or oily liquid consisting of three isomers, strong oxidizing agent, toxic by absorption, ingestion or inhalation. Because it is flammable, we recommend a safe chemical storage building that meets specific regulations for storing Dinitrotoluene. Please review our fire rated products: FIRELoc, DRUMLoc, SUPERLoc
