Trinitroazetidin (TNAZ) is an energetic hetero-cyclic connection, which because of their low melting point (101 "°C) and their good temperature stability (until 240 "°C) as possible replacement for TNT is regarded.

  • Lightyellow orthorhombische crystals. Space group: Pbca
  • Solubly in ethanol. A little solubly in water.
  • Low melting point (101 "°C).
  • Volatilely. In the open container melted TNAZ evaporates rapidly.
  • shrinks strongly with with solidifying.
  • Ignition temperature: 238 "°C
  • Small sensitivity to eletrostatische unloading. ESD: > 0,45J (ESD = electrostatic discharge)
  • Achievement of TNAZ approx. 30% more largely than of TNT
  • Detonation speed: 8950 m/s (C-J)
  • Detonation pressure: 35.7 GPa (C-J)


Experimental energetic connection to the production of high-explosive pourable explosives.
