Abstract : The reaction of glyoxime (4) and hydroxylamine hydrochloride in aqueous sodium hydroxide was found to be a safe and inexpensive method for the preparation of multigram quantities of diaminoglyoxime (5). Potassium hydroxide mediated dehydration of 5 furnished diaminofurazan (1) in good yield of exceptional purity. The ready availability of 1 and 5 has facilitated the synthesis of new energetic furazan derivative MNOTO (B). jg
