Propeller propellant: The largest nitrogen oxide to date, trinitramide (TNA), has been prepared following extensive quantum chemical studies in which its kinetic stability and several physical properties were estimated. TNA was detected using IR and NMR spectroscopy. The compound is highly energetic and shows promise for cryogenic propulsion and as a reagent in high-energy-density material research.
