Abstract : Neither 5,5'-hydrazotetrazole nor the slightly water-soluble metal salts of 5-nitroaminotetrazole appeared sensitive enough for use as primary explosives. Of the common metals, only the cupric, mercurous, and silver salts of 5-nitroaminotetrazole were slightly soluble. All of the compounds were reasonably stable in vacuum-stability tests at 100 deg C. Work will be directed toward preparing derivatives of 5-aminotetrazole and 1-methyl-5-aminotetrazole.
