Abstract

The 2-diazo-4,6-dinitrophenol (dinol, diazol, DDNP, DDNPh, or DADNPh) is the first-ever synthesized diazonium compound. Its synthesis is attributed to Griess [1] who prepared it by introducing nitric oxides into an alcoholic solution of 2-amino-4,6-dinitrophenol (picramic acid) [1, 2]. Its explosive character was, however, first reported more than 30 years later in 1892 by Lenze [3].
