Three 7,8-disubstituted glycolurils were synthesized and subjected to various nitration conditions yielding the corresponding mono-, di-, and tetranitro derivatives. Prior to their synthesis, these nitrated compounds were evaluated computationally to determine their densities and heats of formation, from which explosive performance was predicted. Details on the methods used for the synthesis as well as the results from their computational analysis are discussed.
