A novel energetic compound, N, N'-dinitro-N, N'-bis [3- (nitro-NNO-azoxy)furazan-4-yl] methylenediamine, was synthesized using 3-amino-4- (t-Bu-NNO-azoxy)furazan as starting material. And its structure was characterized by nuclear magnetic resonance (1H NMR and 13C NMR), infrared (IR) spectroscopy, elemental analysis and mass spectrometry, and its backbone was also confirmed by the X-ray structure study of the key intermediate. The detonation performance was calculated by VLW equation of state. Results show density is 1.94 g·cm-3, detonation velocity 9502.52 m·s-1, detonation pressure 41.79 GPa and enthalpy of formation 1007.67 kJ·mol-1, indicating it is a competitive energetic materials.
