Acetyl-nitrate nitration of toluene by zeolite catalysts and methods of oxidation of graphite nanofibers

Nitrated compounds are the principle starting materials for the syntheses of numerous commercially-important classes of chemicals. The first chapter of this thesis examines the nitration of toluene using acetic anhydride and nitric acid with various zeolite catalysts. This reaction was explored in t...
