Provides a comprehensive overview of N[2O[5 chemistry. Reports electrochemical synthesis of N[2O[5 in nitric acid and isolation of aproptic N[2O[5. Discusses scaling up the synthesis of N[2O[5 in both the laboratory and bulk processes. Presents synthesis of new explosives and propellant ingredients, including cage and heterocyclic compounds and new energetic polymers. Reports non-acidic nitration of compounds using N[2O[5.

Editorial Reviews

Proceedings of the April 1995 meeting. After an overview of nitration and of changes in the field in the past 20 years, papers discuss theoretical aspects of nitration and the production of polynitro compounds, N2O5 technology, the production and use of N2O5 as a nitrating agent, and industrial aspects of nitration. Specific topics include continuous manufacturing of solid dinitrogen pentoxide, and commercial dinitrotoluene production processes. Of interest to chemists, engineers, administrators, researchers, students, industrial employees, and government workers involved in nitration applications. Annotation c.
