Abstract : 2,4,6-TRINITROBENZYL CHLORIDE IS CONVERTED TO HNS (2,2',4,4',-6,6'-hexanitrostilbene) by reaction with hydroxide ion supplied by aqueous amines and ammonia. The present method increases the yield of HNS substantially over that obtainable by conventional reaction with sodium hydroxide. (Author)
