Salts of 5,5-azotetrazolate with 5-aminotetrazole and 2,4,6-triamino-s-triazine cations were synthesized as potential ingredients for gun propellants. These salts were characterized by nuclear magnetic resonance NMR and infrared spectroscopy. Thermal properties were studied by differential scanning calorimetry DSC. Their reactions to mechanical stimuli were also determined by small-scale sensitivity testing, small-scale shock reactivity testing, and small-scale internal blast testing.
