: Someone posted a message a few days ago (it's lost now) asking for DNP synthesis information. As self-proclaimed local archivist/researcher, I happened to have an article on it in my files:

If you can do this and get all this stuff you would have by now figured out how to
get DNP. This will cost you more than buying the DNP, let alone you will probably kill
yourself trying to synthesize it. Futhermore, I don't see how it can WORK! Maybe I'm missing something
here and PA or somebody can let me know if I'm wrong, but where does the phenol come in. After the boiling
you have dinitrobenzene. This is not DNP. He is telling us that you can now throw in some lye and that is
going onto a deactivated dinitrobenzene ring? What reaction is this? Maybe I'm wrong but I don't think
it works that way. Anarchy in the USA!
