Abstract:

Tetranitratoethane C2H2N4O12, which has an oxygen content of 70.1 was synthesized by nitration of monomeric glyoxal using N2O5 and purified by sublimation. Single crystals could be grown from CH2Cl2pentane and were used to determine the structure by X-ray diffraction. Several energetic parameters and values were also established.
