Abstract : The novel explosive compound, 1,4-dinitrofurazano (3,4-b)piperazine, is prepared by the reaction of 2,3-dioximininopiperazine with a base, followed by the nitration of the intermediate furazano (3,4-b)piperazine. The nitrated compound has a density, detonation pressure, detonation velocity and Isp similar to RDX while being highly insensitive.
