Hexanitrohexaazaisowurtzitane or CL-20 in India: Synthesis and Characterisation
Keywords: Hexanitrohexaazaisowrtzitme, HNIW, CL-20, synthesis, explosive, chmderisalion, ESCA, elecbon spmscopy, chemical analysis
AbstractHexanitrohexaazaisowurtzitane (HNIW) more commonly called CL-20, the highest density and the most powerful real world explosive, has been made with very high yield and a high product purity. CL-20 is thoroughly characterised by spectral data (IR, NMR and mass) along with electron spectroscopy for chemical analysis (ESCA) and X-ray diffractogram. Furthermore, small-scale sensitivity tests have also been carried out.
