Chemical Taxonomy
DescriptionThis compound belongs to the class of organic compounds known as organic nitro compounds. These are compounds having the nitro group, -NO2 (free valence on nitrogen), which may be attached to carbon, nitrogen (as in nitramines), or oxygen (as in nitrates), among other elements (in the absence of specification, C-nitro compounds are usually implied).
