Abstract

In the design of advanced energetic materials, high-density explosophores play a pivotal role because of their remarkable enhancement of both density and molecular stability. Using diversified functionalization strategies, a comparative study involving various nitropyrazole anions shows that these are crucially important in determining performance and stability. A promising family of pyrazole-based energetic ionic derivatives were synthesized and characterized by NMR and IR spectroscopies, and elemental analysis. Among them, 7, 8, 11–13 exhibit favorable overall performance as energetic materials.
