Hot Article: Trifluoromethyl- or pentafluorosulfanyl-substituted poly-1,2,3-triazole compounds as dense stable energetic materials

Researchers from University of Idaho have synthesized and characterized 4-(trifluoromethyl and pentafluorosulfanyl)-substituted mono- and poly-1,2,3-triazole compounds.

These triazoles can be obtained in moderate to good yield from Cu(I) catalyzed 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition reaction of various azides with trifluoromethyl- and pentafluorosulfanyl-substituted acetylenes. The fluorinated triazene-(1,2,3-triazole) compounds exhibit the best detonation properties – comparable to that of TNT – and all bar one of them have high thermal stability (>270 °C) and are insensitive to impact.
