Abstract

The ammonium salt of 6-amino-2-hydroxy-3,5-dinitropyrazine has been synthesised from 2,6-dimethoxy-3,5-dinitropyrazine and its properties (DSC, crystal structure, impact sensitiveness and thermochemical properties) are compared with the analogous benzene derivative, ammonium 3,5-diaminopicrate. 2009 Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH Co.
