Metal picramates have been of more interest than the picrates due to their ease of preparation and increased sensitivity towards heat and shocks. Recently Agrawal and Agrawal have prepared some transition metal picramates and investigated their stereochemistry from infrared and magnetic susceptibility measurements. They have also investigated the explosive properties of these metal picramates. Also, Aggrawal and Singh have prepared picramates of chromium (III) and maganese(II) but have only investigated their stereochemistry from infrared, electronic spectra and magnetic susceptibility measurements. However, since, the explosive properties may throw some direct utility of the picramates as a primary explosive. A detailed study of the explosive properties have been carried out.
