Klapötke, Thomas M.; Krumm, Burkhard; Scharf, Regina (2016): N-Nitrosarcosine: An Economic Precursor for the Synthesis of New Energetic Materials. In: Chemistry-An Asian Journal, Vol. 11, No. 21: pp. 3134-3144

New energetic compounds have been synthesized starting from the readily available N-(cyanomethyl)-N-methylamine. From this, N-nitrosarcosine was prepared in few steps, which serves as a starting material for the synthesis of oxygen-rich compounds. The compounds were thoroughly characterized including multinuclear NMR and vibrational spectroscopy and also molecular structures by single X-ray diffraction were obtained. Their energetic properties were determined including the sensitivities towards impact and friction, their heat of formations were calculated and the detonation and combustion parameters were predicted using EXPLO5V6.02.
