Nitromethane (CH3NO2) is a flammable, colorless, oily liquid that is moderately toxic. The chemical is explosive and used as a stabilizer for chlorinated solvents as well as engine fuel for motor racing.. Because it is flammable, we recommend a safe chemical storage building that meets specific regulations for storing Nitromethane. Please review our fire rated products: SUPERLoc, FIRELoc
