Abstract

Nitrotriazolone has been synthesised and fully characterised. This explosive was found to exhibit self-binding properties forming pellets at different loads. The compression strength of these pellets were in the range 80-128 kgf/cm2 under one to three tonne/cm2 load. Other pressable formulations containing nitrotriazolone have also been successfully prepared. A composition comparable to composition B was also prepared using nitrotriazolone and trinitrotoluene (60:40). Mechanical properties and insensitivity of this new composition were found to be superior.
