An improved synthesis of insensitive, high-density, high-explosive, 7-amino-4,6-dinitrobenzofuroxan ADNBF is reported. Treatment of 2,3,4,6-tetranitroaniline with sodium azide in acetic acid leads to an isolated 96 yield of high-purity ADNBF. 2,3,4,6-Tetranitroaniline is readily prepared from inexpensive m-nitroaniline by direct nitration.
