A novel explosive compound, 1,4,5,8-tetranitro-1,4,5,8-tetraazadifurazano-3,4-c3,4-hdecalin is prepared by the reaction of 3,4-diaminofurazan and glyoxal in dilute hydrochloric acid, followed by the nitration of the intermediate 1,4,5,8-tetraazadifurazano 3,4-c3,4-hdecalin. The nitrated compound has a higher density and detonation pressure and velocity than the known explosives HMX and HNB.
