Abstract

An economical method of synthesis of HNS has been developed in which solution of TNT is treated with 6 per cent sodium hypochlorite at 3 +-1 degree Celsius to get the desired product. Effect of concentration as well as pH of sodium hypochlorite on the yield of HNS has also been studied. The solubility of HNS in various organic solvents has also been determined.
