Abstract
Recently ADN was disclosed to replace AP or AN as a solid oxidizer. 3-N,N-Dinitraminopropanitrile, a key intermediate in the preparation of ADN, was synthesized from bis(2-cyanoethyl)amine by the sequence: nitration of bis(2-cyanoethyl)amine followed by decyanoethylation by base and the second nitration with NO2BF4. 3-N-Nitro-bis(2-cyanoethyl)amine could also be obtained by the oxidation of the corresponding N-nitroso compound.
