Nitration of Naphthol: A Laboratory Experiment.
Mowery, Dwight F.
Journal of Chemical Education, v59 n8 p689-90 Aug 1982
Products of nitrations, upon distillation or steam distillation, may produce dermatitis in some students. A procedure for nitration of beta-naphthol producing a relatively non-volatile product not purified by steam distillation is described. Nitration of alpha-naphthol by the same procedure yields Martius Yellow dye which dyes wool yellow or brown. (Author/JN)
