Abstract:

Tetranitroglycoluril TNGU was prepared according to the US Army Research Laboratory s ARL s method by the nitration of imidazo-4,5-d-imidazole nitrate using trifluoroacetic anhydride and 100 nitric acid. This resulting material was then subjected to hydrolytic stability studies in which it was placed into a temperature and humidity chamber set to 23 C and 85 relative humidity and the change in concentration of TNGU was measured over time through the use of nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy.
