WHAT DOES NITROPARAFFIN MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Nitro compound

Nitro compounds are organic compounds that contain one or more nitro functional groups. They are often highly explosive, especially when the compound contains more than one nitro group and is impure. The nitro group is one of the most common explosophores used globally. This property of both nitro and nitrate groups is because their thermal decomposition yields molecular nitrogen N2 gas plus considerable energy, due to the high strength of the bond in molecular nitrogen. Aromatic nitro compounds are typically synthesized by the action of a mixture of nitric and sulfuric acids on an organic molecule. The one produced on the largest scale, by far, is nitrobenzene. Many explosives are produced by nitration including trinitrophenol, trinitrotoluene, and trinitroresorcinol.

Definition of nitroparaffin in the English dictionary
