ABSTRACT 1,1-Diamino-2,2-dinitroethene (DADNE, FOX-7) is an explosive of current interest. In our work, an advanced study of detonation characteristics of this explosive was performed. DADNE was prepared and recrystallized on a laboratory scale. Some sensitivity and detonation properties of DADNE were determined. The detonation performance was established by measurements of the detonation wave velocity, detonation pressure and calorimetric heat of explosion as well as the accelerating ability. The JWL (Jones-Wilkins-Lee) isentrope and the constant-gamma isentrope for the detonation products of DADNE were also found.

    ABSTRACT: A series of dense and energetic polynitroaryl-1,2,4-triazoles were synthesized through the nitration of aryl-1,2,4-triazoles. The Cu-catalyzed/base-mediated coupling reactions of haloarenes with 1,2,4-triazoles delivered N-aryl-1,2,4-triazoles. These new nitro-rich-aryltriazoles were characterized by analytical and spectroscopic methods. The solid-state structures of most of these compounds were established by X-ray diffraction analysis. Their thermal properties were determined by differential scanning calorimetry-thermogravimetric analysis. Their heats of formation (HOFs) and crystal densities were also calculated. The densities of the synthesized compounds ranged from 1.40 to 1.85 g cm(-3) . Some of these newly synthesized compounds exhibited high positive HOFs, good thermal stabilities, high densities, and reasonable detonation velocities and pressures.

    ABSTRACT: The present study constructed and optimized FOX-7 crystal using a novel technique including grand canonical monte carlo (GCMC), density functional theory (DFT) and molecular dynamics (MD) methods. Therein, the crystal density, atomic and electronic actions were considered. The results showed that the 1.96 g·cm -3 FOX-7 crystal has the highest stability and detonation properties, such as the total crystal energy, surface electronic density, friction sensitivity, detonation pressure, and so on. These results are close to the experimental data.

    ABSTRACT: A new compound, 2-(dinitromethylene)-1,3-diazacyclopentane (DNDZ), was prepared by the reaction of 1,1-diamino-2,2-dinitroethylene (FOX-7) with 1,2-diaminoethane in N-methylpyrrolidone (NMP). Thermal decomposition of DNDZ was studied under non-isothermal conditions by DSC, TG/DTG methods, and the enthalpy, apparent activation energy and pre-exponential factor of the exothermic decomposition reaction were obtained as 317.13 kJ·mol−1, 269.7 kJ·mol−1 and 1024.51 s−1, respectively. The critical temperature of thermal explosion was 261.04°C. Specific heat capacity of DNDZ was determined with a micro-DSC method and a theoretical calculation method, and the molar heat capacity was 205.41 J·mol−1·K−1 at 298.15 K. Adiabatic time-to-explosion was calculated to be a certain value between 263–289 s. DNDZ has higher thermal stability than FOX-7.
