Abstract:

High nitrogen materials are sought as potential dense powerful but insensitive explosive and propellant ingredients. Progress towards the synthesis of 3,5-diamino-2,4,6-trinitropyridine-1-oxide is described. Also described is recent research to elucidate the chemistry of 2,4,8,10-tetranitrodibenzo-1,3a,4, 6a-tetraazapentalene TACOT, which will enable the development of new energetic materials based on this ring system.
