Claßen, Moritz; Heimsch, Stefanie B.; Klapötke, Thomas M. (2019): Synthesis and Characterization of New Azido Esters Derived from Malonic Acid. In: Propellants Explosives Pyrotechnics, Vol. 44, No. 12: pp. 1515-1520

Three new α,α‐diazidated azido esters derived from malonic acid were synthesized and characterized with a method of diazidation under mild reaction conditions. They are energy‐rich, small, liquid molecules which contain up to six azido moieties. The three synthesized compounds were compared to already known azidated malonic acid esters regarding their density, thermal stability, calculated heat of formation and energetic properties. Further they were tested and classified for their sensitivities according to UN guidelines.
