Abstract : The synthesis of the energetic compound 4-(4-NITRO-1,2,5-OXADIAZOL-3-YL)-NNO-azoxyl-1,2,5-oxadiazol-3-amine (3) was achieved in two steps from diaminofurazan (1). Compound 3 was characterized by X-ray diffraction. From the X-ray structure a bifurcated intramolecular H-bond between O(2)- H(2)- N(4) was observed. In addition, intramolecular H-bonding was observed between H(1) and N(7) of an adjacent molecule. One molecule of ethanol and one-half molecule of water per molecule of water of 3 was observed in the crystal lattice. However, no H-bonding was observed between the solvent molecules and 3 in the crystal lattice. Despite the presence of solvent in the crystal lattice, 3 was found to have a high crystal density (d = 1.856 g/cu cm).
