    2,4-Dinitrophenol (DNP) is reported to cause rapid loss of weight, but unfortunately is associated with an unacceptably high rate of significant adverse effects. DNP is sold mostly over the internet under a number of different names as a weight loss/slimming aid. It causes uncoupling of...

    The toxic effects of a mixture of 2-aminoanthracene (2-AA), benzanthracene (BA), and dinitropyrene isomers (DNP), and the toxic effects of these compounds individually, were investigated in the Fischer-344 rat following dietary exposure via a powdered basal diet. Animals were sacrificed at 14-,...

    In an attempt to find superior propellants, 2-diazo-4,6-dinitrophenol (DDNP) and its -NO, -NH, -CN, -NC, -ONO, and -NF derivatives were studied at the B3LYP/6-311++G level of density functional theory (DFT). Sensitivity was evaluated using bond dissociation enthalpies (BDEs) and molecular...

    The immersion enthalpies of bovine bone char in aqueous solutions of 2,4-dinitrophenol (DNP) of 10, 30, 50, 70 and 100 mg/â„“ concentration were determined. The results showed that the amount of DNP adsorbed and the variation in the immersion enthalpy depended upon the concentration of the...
