Although the heat produced by aromatic nitration is relatively large in comparison to the heat produced by dilution, knowledge of the rate of heat generation due to dilution of the mixed acid is important for predicting the dynamic behaviour of discontinuous nitration processes. In this paper a mathematical model, its implementation and experimental validation of the heat effects due to dilution are described and discussed.
