Abstract:

Structural characterization of 12 energetic materials and precursoprs by x-ray diffraction was performed. The materials examined include 6,6,10, 10- tetranitropentacyclo5.3.02,5.03,9.04,8 decane 2,6-Diamono-3,5-dinitro-1,4- pyrazine 4,4,8,8-tetranitro-bicyclooctane 2,3,4-Trinitropyrrole 1,3,5- Trinitroso-1,3,5-triazacyclohexane 3,3-Bismethyl-nitroaminomethyloxetane 3, 3-Bisnitratomethyl-oxetane 3-Methoxy-2,4-dinitro-2,4-diazapentane Tri- benzyltriazawurtzitane 3-Cyano-4,4,5,5-tetramethylisoxazoline-n-oxide 5-Aza-6 methoxyiracil and N-4-amino-1,2,5-triazolo-N-methoxy-trichloroacetamidine. The compounds studied range in density from 1.175 mgcu mm tri-benzyl- triazawurtzitane to 1.856 mgcu mm trinitropyrrole and four have crystal densities in the range 1.717 to 1.856 mgcu mm. Originator supplied keywords include homocubane oxetanes nitropyrrole nitramines tetranitrobicyclooctane.
