an improved synthesis of 3,6-diamino-1,2,4,5-tetrazine.
http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/jhet.5570270717/a...
I recently found that LAX-112 is a very good explosive, but LAX-112 is hard to synthsize. This paper gives a new and feasible way to make LAX-112, which I think may be helpful for me. but I cant download it..so sad..so, my friends, can you guys help download this paper?
if so,,thank you very much!!

It turned out that the actual measured performance of LAX-112 was much lower than the original calculations. Although LAX-112 has plenty of nitrogen and has two amino groups with which to form a double salt, all the carbon-nitrogen bonds are not ideal, and the aromatic ring is also unusually stable, which takes away from power.

yes,you are right. I have a paper(Chinese)which tested almost every tetrazine explosive and found that most of them were overestimated...some are powerful but sensitive ,some are insensitive but have low performance. here is the paper http://www.docin.com/p-118706384.html (P53 is the data) 7776m/s when density is 1.711(97%LAX-112).

But LAX-112 is relatively successful when comparing with its peers..if the synthsis is feasible for a personal lab, I still want to have a try.

and thank you all for helping me so much!
