Abstract

original image

Making an impact: Oxy-5-aminotetrazoles, which were obtained from the reaction of cyanogen azide and alkyl oxyamine in 100 % nitric acid (see scheme), give a series of highly energetic oxy-5-nitroiminotetrazolates in good yield. These compounds exhibit good physical and detonation properties, such as moderate thermal stabilities, high densities, high endothermy, good detonation pressures P, and good detonation velocities D.
