Abstract:

During the last decade, there has been much interest in inorganic polyazide chemistry.1-16 Because of the energetic nature of the azido group, polyazides are highly endothermic compounds, whose energy content increases with an increasing number of azido ligands. It is, therefore, not surprising, that the synthesis of molecules with a high number of azido groups is very challenging due to their explosive nature and shock-sensitivity.
