Molecular model of the nitrobenzene organic compound 2,4-dinitrophenol (C6.H4.N2.O5). Atoms are represented as spheres and are colour-coded: carbon (grey), hydrogen (white), nitrogen (blue) and oxygen (red). Dinitrophenol is used in the production of explosives, pesticides and wood preservers. It is also used as a diet aid, as it increases metabolism, but this use is banned in most countries.
