Abstract : A novel explosive compound, 1,4,5,8-tetranitro-1,4,5,8-tetraazadifurazano-(3,4-c)(3,4-h)decalin is prepared by the reaction of 3,4-diaminofurazan and glyoxal in dilute hydrochloric acid, followed by the nitration of the intermediate 1,4,5,8-tetraazadifurazano (3,4-c)(3,4-h)decalin. The nitrated compound has a higher density and detonation pressure and velocity than the known explosives HMX and HNB.
