Abstract : A convenient one-step preparation of hydrazinium nitrates by the reaction of tertiary amines or azaarenes with hydroxylamine-O-sulfonic acid and barium nitrate in the barium oxide was developed. The hydrazinium nitrates were easily transformed into amine-nitroimides with trifluoroacetic anhydride- trifluoroacetic acid using Katritzky's procedure including bridgehead nitrogen systems. Remarkably stable, high energetic compounds such as DABCO-1,4-bis- nitroimide 1 were obtained in good preparative yield. Detailed spectroscopic and x-ray structural studies were carried out to substantiate the structures. In preliminary tests, compound 1 was found to be of high energetic nature with density 1.610 g/cc.
