An object of this invention is to provide a new method of recrystallizing 2,2, 4,4, 6,6-hexanitrostilbene-II. Another object of this invention is to provide high purity, finely divided 2,2,4,4,6,6-hexanitrostilbene-II. A further object of this invention is to provide 2,2,4,4,6,6-hexanitrostilbene havig a high degree of thermal stability. Yet another object of this invention is to provide 2,2,4,46,-hexanitrostilbene having a uniform particle size. A still further object of this invention is to provide 2,2,4,4,6,6-hexanitrostilbene in a form which is suitable for use in detonation cords, flexible shape charges, and other flexible explosive devices in a high temperature environment.
