5-aminotetrazole as high explosive


How does the 5-ATZ perform as a high explosive compared to RDX? - what is it's TNT equivalent? Also, has anyone had success detonating it?

I remember a 5-ATZ datasheet with VoD data. I do not remember the producer's name or country. If I'm not mistaken, the VoD was some 4700 meters per s. at low density, maybe 1g/cm3 or at lover bulk density.

But the nitrate salt is quite energetic. Exceeding RDX, if I'm not mistaken.
