Abstract: The reaction between peroxone and two isomers of aminodinitrotoluene (ADNT) was studied with respect to kinetics of reaction and the products formed. The ADNTs react rapidly with ozone and hydroxyl radical, the principal components of peroxone. At fairly high ADNT concentrations (ppm), the reaction of ADNT is primarily with ozone. At lower ADNT concentrations (ppb), hydroxyl radical competes with ozone in pure water systems. Reactions of both the 2- and 4-ADNT isomers result in the formation of pyruvic acid, nitrate ion, and nitrite ion. A reaction mechanism consistent with these products is proposed.
