Abstract

original image

A nitrogen-rich energetic salt containing the longest reported nitrogen chain (N11), was obtained by an azo coupling reaction from 1,5-diaminotetrazole. This is the first example of an azo reaction between an N[BOND]NH2 diazonium salt and an amine derivative. The product structure was confirmed by X-ray crystallography, and its physical and explosive properties were characterized.
