Synthesis of the Ammonium Salt of 6-Amino-2-hydroxy- 3,5-dinitropyrazine and a Comparison of its Properties with those of Ammonium 3,5-Diaminopicrate (ADAP)

By A. J. Bellamy, P. Golding and M. F. Mahon


The ammonium salt of 6-amino-2-hydroxy-3,5-dinitropyrazine has been synthesised from 2,6-dimethoxy-3,5-dinitropyrazine and its properties [DSC, crystal structure, impact sensitiveness, thermochemical properties] are compared with the analogous benzene derivative, ammonium 3,5-diaminopicrate
