An excellent article by our scientific team, which is devoted to a series of new high-energy structures representing a sequence of bifuroxans enriched with explosophoric nitro- and azo groups. The synthesized compounds combine the necessary physicochemical properties and excellent energetic characteristics. They have high densities, acceptable thermal stability, high enthalpy of formation and a positive oxygen balance by CO. Due to such an advantageous set of properties, the synthesized high-energy substances have high detonation velocities, excellent explosion heats and combustion parameters. The results provide a great potential for the use of the synthesized structures based on furoxans as high-energy materials of a new generation. Lets go, colleagues, to new heights!
