High nitrogen compounds are the focus of advanced energetic material research aimed at future needs in the area of advanced explosives and propellants. One method of building nitrogen rich molecules consists of using a core heterocycle, e.g. a tetrazole, and nitrogen containing pendant groups like amines and azides. Hydrazine and its derivatives are widely used as propellants and a combination of two energetic compounds, i.e. hydrazines and tetrazoles, might provide materials with advantageous properties for energetic applications. Instead of coupling the hydrazine moiety directly to the tetrazole ring, we decided to incorporate an alkyl spacer which can help to increase thermal stability and lower the sensitivity towards impact and friction.
