A series of new nitramines has been synthesized. All of the new compounds possess four nitramine moieties arranged about a cyclobutane ring in a cis-trans-cis configuration. One of the new materials, CL-21, is exceptionally stable thermally and hydrolytically, yet very sensitive to impact. Because of this unique combination of properties, this new explosive may find applications as a PETN replacement in a number of applications. Cyclobutane, Explosives, and Nitramines.
