Title: Biphasic production of 2,4,6-triamino-1,3,5-trinitrobenzene (TATB)

Abstract

Production of 2,4,6-triamino-1,3,5-trinitrobenzene (TATB) through a safer, less harmful process while yielding a superior product is disclosed. The biphasic production process may include mixing a solution of 1,3,5-trichloro-2,4,6-trinitrobenzene (TCTNB) and a surfactant into a solvent in a sealed, heated vessel such that TATB is formed in a mixture. The biphasic production process may also include pressurizing the vessel with gaseous ammonia such that aqueous TATB is formed and separating the TATB from the mixture.
