Title: Method for the production of high-purity triaminotrinitrobenzene

Abstract

Triaminotrinitrobenzene is readily formed by the nitration of 1,3,5-trichlorobenzene to 1,3,5-trichloro-2,4,6-trinitrobenzene followed by amination to triaminotrinitrobenzene. The purity of the triaminotrinitrobenzene is significantly improved if, during the amination step, sufficient water is present that the byproduct ammonium chloride formed during the amination is rendered at least semideliquescent.
