Abstract : The heats of formation of two series of triazoles, 3-azido-s-triazoles, and 4-amino-3-azido-s-triazoles, were determined from the heat of combustion in an oxygen bomb calorimeter. Differential thermograms were obtained to determine the thermal stability of each compound. Of the series of azides studied, the 3-azido-s-triazoles offer greater promise in propellant applications due to their thermal stability and shock insensitivity. (Author)
