Abstract : This invention relates to energetic compounds and more particularly to energetic inorganic nitrocompounds. Ammonium dinitramide (ADN) is a prior art high oxidant balance oxidizer. M. J. Kamlet and H. G. Adolph disclose in Propellants and Explosives, 4, 30 (1979) a method of measuring the oxidant balance of energetic compounds. They defined oxidant balance (OB sub 100) to be the number of equivalents of oxidant per hundred grams of explosive above the amount required to burn all hydrogen to H2O or HF and all carbon to CO. jg p.2
