Abstract:

The novel explosive compound, 1,4-dinitrofurazano 3,4-bpiperazine, is prepared by the reaction of 2,3-dioximininopiperazine with a base, followed by the nitration of the intermediate furazano 3,4-bpiperazine. The nitrated compound has a density, detonation pressure, detonation velocity and Isp similar to RDX while being highly insensitive.
