Abstract

original image

Treibstoff in Propellerform: Das bislang größte Stickstoffoxid, Trinitramid (TNA), wurde IR- und NMR-spektroskopisch nachgewiesen, nachdem in quantenchemischen Studien seine kinetische Beständigkeit und einige physikalische Eigenschaften vorhergesagt worden waren. Die Verbindung ist außerordentlich energiereich und möglicherweise als kryogener Treibstoff und zur Erforschung von Materialien mit hoher Energiedichte geeignet.
