A bundle of energy: The title compounds were synthesized in good yield from aminotetrazoles (obtained from the reaction of cyanogen azide with primary amines) by treatment with 100 % nitric acid and were fully characterized by spectroscopic methods, elemental analysis, and in some cases X-ray diffraction (see example; N blue, O red). The heats of formation of these energetic materials were calculated, as well as their detonation pressures and velocities.
