New energetic formulations are being developed to provide for insensitive munitions. The objective of this work was to provide focused toxicity information for constituents of IMX-101—NTO and DNAN—that will allow for more accurate benchmark derivation consistent with existing regulatory guidance and frameworks and allow for optimal operational flexibility at ranges while ensuring environmental health. Acute and chronic DNAN aquatic toxicity data suggest that DNAN is slightly less toxic than other nitroaromatics, such as TNT. Media-based concentrations were developed for soil and drinking water based on project results and other data.
