Azo-Linked High-Nitrogen Energetic Materials


In this review, we document the most recent developments in azo-linked heteroaromatic species ( imidazole, pyrazole, triazole, triazine, tetrazine and oxadiazole) high-nitrogen energetic materials and their salts. In this account, a wider range of azo materials, such as coordination polymers and metal-organics are also included. The synthesis of these azo based compounds, their physical and explosive properties are presented. These energetic compounds generally exhibit desirable properties and performance, which in some cases are superior to those of the common energetic materials RDX, TNT, and TATB.
