Title: Photochemical and thermochemical decomposition of 3-nitro-1,2,4-triazol-5-one and perdeuterio-3-nitro- 1,2,4-triazol-5-one in neat and mixed systems. (Reannouncement with new availability information)

Abstract

Problems associated with catastrophic mishaps and sympathetic detonations have made common explosives such as TNT. RDX, and HMX less attractive for use in certain applications and have spurred efforts to synthesize new insensitive high explosives (IHE) which meet more stringent chemical and physical requirements. 3-Nitro-1,2,4-triazol-5-one (NTO) is currently receiving considerable attention from both defense and civilian sectors as a potential new generation IHE which is energetically comparable to RDX and which possesses sensitivity and stability characteristics comparable to 1,3,5-triamino- 2,4,6-trinitrobenzene (TATB). The stability characteristics of this class of compounds are of vital importance, as the materials can be subjected to extreme conditions while being transported, stored, or prepared for use.
