The synthesis of the energetic compound 4-[(4-nitro-1,2,5-oxadiazol-3-yl)-NNO-azoxyl]-1,2,5-oxadiazol-3-amine (3) was achieved in two steps from diaminofurazan (1). Compound 3 was characterized by X-ray diffraction. From the X-ray structure a bifurcated intramolecular H bond between O(2)-H(2)-N(4) was observed. In addition, intramolecular H bonding was observed between H(1) and N(7)′ of an adjacent molecule. One molecule of ethanol and one-half molecule of water per molecule of3 was observed in… CONTINUE READING
